Computer vision syndrome

Are you miserable at work and much less productive than you should be?

Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is a very real problem for many people who spend hours daily in front of a computer screen.

Dr. Denenberg recommend you see your eye doctor for regular exams because computer users can develop vision changes, and an out-of-date prescription causes a lot of eyestrain.

Without computer eyeglasses, many computer users often end up with blurred vision, eye strain, and headaches — the hallmark symptoms of computer vision syndrome. Worse, many people try to compensate for their blurred vision by leaning forward, or by tipping their head to look through the bottom portion of their glasses. Both of these actions can result in a sore neck, sore shoulders and a sore back.

Prior to scheduling your eye exam, measure how far you sit from your computer, measure from the bridge of your nose to the front of your computer screen. Bring this measurement with you to your exam so Dr. Denenberg will customize your Rx to your individual needs and office ergonomics.
