Computer Eye Strain

Care for Computer Eye Strain

So many jobs these days require you to be staring at a computer screen for hours at a time. Over time, this extended exposure can lead to computer screen eye strain and take a significant toll on your eyes. Classic Vision Care stands at the cutting edge of eye care and is equipped to diagnose and treat computer eye strain. With our help, you can have long-lasting relief for your eyes.

What Is Computer Eye Strain?

Computer eye strain syndrome is caused by exposure to blue light for extended periods of time. Blue light comes from your computer monitor, your mobile devices and tablets.

It can also be caused by having to focus on your screens. Think about how small your smartphone screen is and how small the text is as you scroll through a website.

Computer Eye Syndrome

There are many different symptoms of eye strain from computers. They include:

  • Struggling to focus on the screen.
  • Tired eyes from staring at the screen for too long.
  • Red and irritated eyes.
  • Dry and fatigued eyes.
  • Headaches behind the eyes, or double vision.

While these symptoms, at first, may feel annoying, over time, they can severely impact your productivity and health.
