Computer Vision Treatment at Naples Eye Physicians

Some people only think of going to their ophthalmologist if they suspect a change in their eyesight, and might not schedule a visit if they believe their vision is fine. But even when your prescription hasn't changed in a while, there are still benefits you can take advantage of when you see a Doctor of Ophthalmology. One thing that is likely to be analyzed is the possibility that you may be affected by computer vision. Our staff at Naples Eye Physicians can diagnose and treat computer vision.


What is Computer Vision?

Computer vision is a repetitive motion injury in your eye muscles, in some ways it is not much different from your arm hurting the day after you went out bowling with your friends or family. But the symptoms are a lot different. Some symptoms you might experience include

  • Blurred or double vision
  • Dry, irritated eyes
  • Dizziness and nausea
  • Headaches

Computer vision can be caused by a variety of factors, including the amount of glare on the screen, the level of blue light, and the computer's contrast settings. Getting the proper eye care from your ophthalmologist, as well as following directions regarding computer positioning, wearing the right eyeglasses, and adjusting the settings on your actual computer can make a big difference in reducing computer vision-related symptoms. At Naples Eye Physicians, we'll help you identify important warning signs that will allow you to take the necessary breaks from your screen and reduce eye strain and related symptoms.

Taking Care of Your Eyes in a World of Screens

While some may think that computer vision is mainly a concern who work on computers a lot for their jobs, the truth is that almost anyone can be affected by symptoms. Looking too long at cell phones, reading books on tablets, and binge-watching your favorite show can leave you exposed to glare that can affect your eyes.  At Naples Eye Physicians, our ophthalmologist helps direct our patients to the right strategies that can help them reduce the eye strain that can lead to episodes of computer vision. So far, all knowledge points to the effects of computer vision being temporary, but not having full use of your vision when you need it is never a good thing. At Naples Eye Physicians, we can help you find the right strategies that will help you work with your schedule and use tools like specialized coatings that help to reduce glare.
