Silver Spring Computer Vision Exams
Nowadays, nearly everyone has a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer at home, or uses one at work, school, or on their daily commute. For some people, the amount of time spent in front of a computer each week is staggeringly high, with both work and personal time being eaten up by it. It probably does not come as a surprise then that computer vision syndrome, or CVS, is becoming an increasingly common problem. Here at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center, we're pleased to offer effective solutions.
You may think that there is no difference between reading your computer screen than there is in reading a book or magazine, but the truth is that the way that you read a screen is different. Your eyes have to work significantly harder when looking at a screen, and the inevitable result is that it tires out your eyes. If you read books on your computer, the difficulties are even more obvious. CVS affects more than 175 million people, which is why our Silver Spring computer vision exams
are so essential. When should you come in for one? If you find yourself exhibiting symptoms such as eye fatigue, eye strain, headaches, dry eyes, burning eyes, double vision, blurry vision, or neck and shoulder pain, then it's a good idea to get one of our Silver Spring computer vision exams
. If you go have CVS as determined by your visit to our eye doctor, a special prescription for eyeglasses designed for reading on your computer can help a lot. They are not the same as reading glasses, made as they are for the specific distance between the monitor and your eyes. There are also useful tips and advice that our eye doctor will offer in order to reduce the effects of CVS.
