With new shift in the routine, the time one spends on screen has increased, especially laptops or computers. If you recollect your day’s routine then you will realise that on an average the screen exposure is about 8 hours, which really cause strain to eyes.
Computer vision syndrome is a group of symptoms that leads to eye problems. There are studies indicating that between 50% and 90% of people who work at a computer screen have at least some symptoms. The syndrome can even affect kids at young age.
It happens because of repetitive motion of the eye. And it can get worse the longer you continue the movement.
When you work on screen the eyes have to focus and refocus again and again. The constant moving, changing, shifting focus and sending multiple images to brain in no time this require a lot of efforts from eye muscles. The contrast and glare added by the scree affect the eyes more. Also, while concentrating on screen the eye blinking process is unconsciously controlled and we intend to blink less which makes eye dry and may blur the vision.
If this remains unattended it may affect the work performance of an individual.
A few simple changes can help in preventing these problems
