Computers represent a new challenge for our eyes. The light that computers emit and the images on the screens of electronic devices can cause a number of issues. Sites Vision Clinic in Clarksville can help you navigate the best way to avoid computer vision issues.
Computers flicker imperceptibly and use a light spectrum that can be harsh and glaring. When you are using a computer, not only do your eyes have to track words on the screen like they do in a book, but they also have to cope with glare. Computer screens are often larger than books and thus require more movement. People also tend to use computers along with papers or with multiple tabs open, making eye strain even greater. When people are looking at a computer, people also blink less often than normal.
All of this means that computers are a lot of work for your eyes and can cause some serious symptoms, which are often categorized under the label of computer vision syndrome (CVS):
Modern culture is extremely heavily electronic, and computer vision is part of that. Most people cannot do their jobs these days without the use of electronic devices, and many people enjoy doing things on computers in their free time, as well. It is entirely possible for a normal day to consist of checking emails on your phone before work, working in front of a computer, and then relaxing after work in front of the television.
This means that maintaining eye comfort while on electronic devices is extremely important to people. Unfortunately, most people do not start to prioritize the issue until they start having problems. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to make working on a computer more comfortable.
There are a number of ways that you can take care of your eyes and reduce the symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome:
