Computer Vision Syndrome

Do you have a smartphone? Laptop? Tablet? SmartWatch? Chances are you have one, two or all of these devices. Each of these devices has a screen on it that emits a blue light. This blue light can cause havoc on your vision and over time can cause serious eye strain, chronic headaches, fatigue, body pain and more.

In this day and age most of us sit at a computer and stare at a screen for the majority of the day. Squinting, scrolling, clicking, pressing, sliding our eyes back and forth on screens that are perhaps not necessarily easy to read on.

Computer Vision Syndrome occurs when you feel the eye strain and headaches due to working on these types of devices for long periods of time without giving your eyes the break it needs from backlit screens. These backlit screens constantly flicker causing consistent focus changes and in many cases individuals subconsciously go long periods of time without even blinking.

Common Symptoms:

  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Dry, red eyes
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Neck or back pain

Dr Rocha and his team are able to diagnose Computer Vision Syndrome and integrate the newest technology available, including Blue IQ Lenses that best reduce your exposure to harmful blue light while using your devices on a daily basis.
