Computer Vision Syndrome
In today’s technological world, most individuals spend a great deal of time in front of a computer, phone, or other screens. Over time, this can lead to a condition called Computer Vision Syndrome. In addition to frequent, prolonged use of screen-based technology, the condition can be exacerbated by glare from the screen, poor lighting conditions, or sitting too close to a screen.
Some of the symptoms, such as blurred vision, pain in the neck and shoulders, dry eyes, and headaches overlap with standard eye strain but can be more pervasive and elevated with CVS. Your vision specialist can assess your vision to see if treatment for CVS would be beneficial for you. Treatment is non-invasive and might only involve behavior-based solutions for screen viewing.
If more help is needed, many patients find great success with optical adjustments.
- Lens treatments for screen viewing
- Lens Rx or design
- Lenses or contacts designed for computer, smartphone, or tablet use that provide relaxation
- Lenses for office-only use
If you are active in sports, you know how important your vision can be if you want to be successful. A sports vision analysis can help find issues that might be standing in the way of optimizing your sports performance, such as tracking, dominance, depth-perception, or visual processing speed. Once your analysis is complete, some simple optical solutions can be utilized to get the most out of your performance visually.
Depending on your results and the sports you play, you might benefit from special tinting, anti-fogging, or polarization. Other solutions help improve peripheral vision or stabilize your vision when dealing with fast-moving sports. Some special designs are created with a specific sport in mind, such as golf. Eye protection is also important when playing sports, so protective eye gear tailored to your particular sport can help prevent injury.
High Altitude Dry Eye Syndrome
Although it’s not a commonly known issue outside of high-altitude areas, High Altitude Dry Eye Syndrome is a condition that can start with symptoms of typical dry eyes but become chronic and cause increasing corneal damage over time. More common in women, older individuals, those taking certain medications, and those with other certain other medical conditions, this syndrome can be caused by either a lack of adequate tear production or poor quality of tears.
In either case, you might experience redness, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, scratchiness, burning, or itchiness. A vision specialist can analyze your eye condition to see if you are at risk of a chronic issue and treat with options such as medications or supplements.
