Computer Vision Stress Disorder

These days, looking at a computer screen for hours a day is part of life. Screens are part of work, relaxation and entertainment. The problem is, overexposure to screens can cause very real strain on your vision and your ocular health.

Whether you’re having difficulty focusing on a computer screen, suffering from headaches, poor posture, or experiencing eye fatigue and blurriness when reading; it could be the result of a condition called computer vision stress disorder. With a routine eye exam in Manhattan Beach, CA, we can diagnose this condition and recommend ways to help alleviate your symptoms:

  • Single vision glasses or computer bifocal lenses to improve your overall condition
  • Computer fatigue glasses that block the harmful blue light spectrum (worn over contacts)
  • Counseling on effective computer ergonomics, lighting, posture and computer placement

The good news about computer vision stress disorder is that it can be controlled and reversed with the proper precautions. Let us introduce you to the right vision care regimen to ensure your eyes aren’t being pushed to their limits by everyday screen time.
