“Why do my eyes bother me when working on the computer?”

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), or digital eye strain, is becoming a very common issue and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and other digital devices.

Many people don’t realize how hard their eyes are working when using a computer, especially for extended periods, and the symptoms of digital eye strain can include headaches, tired eyes, dry eyes, red eyes, neck and back pain, and overall fatigue and discomfort.

So, precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen, or on your digital devices, which we all seem to do! Many preventive measures may sound obvious but are frequently overlooked or ignored.
