COMPUTER VISION SYNDROME (CVS)

WHAT IS IT?

CVS is the term used to describe eye and vision problems experienced during, or related to computer use. CVS is characterized by visual symptoms that result from extended periods of computer usage. Common symptoms include: headaches, eye strain, neck and back aches, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, double vision, and dry or irritated eyes

WHY DOES IT OCCUR?

In most cases, symptoms occur because the visual demands of the task exceed the visual abilities of the individual to comfortably perform the task.

HOW COMMON IS IT?

CVS affects three out of four computer users. Your vision, your computer, and the environment where you use your computer are all factors that can lead to CVS.

HOW IS IT TREATED?

An eye exam can determine the best course of treatment. Commonly, eyeglasses and eye drops are prescribed to help improve the patient’s vision and dry eye.
