Eye Care From Our Sites Vision Clinic Optometry Team
At Sites Vision Clinic in Clarksville, TN, our optometry team offers diagnosis, treatment, and management options for a wide range of common eye and vision conditions. If you spend a lot of your time working in front of a computer or similar screen, you may have risk factors for Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). By having a better understanding of what this condition is and how it develops, you can better protect your eye health.
All About Computers Vision Syndrome
Specifically, computer vision syndrome refers to an eye condition where the eyes are exposed to high amounts of blue light, which is most commonly emitted in large amounts from the computer, smartphone, tablet, and similar screens. This blue light, despite having the shortest wavelengths of any type of light, is also the most powerful and thus damaging to the eyes. Too much exposure to blue light can deteriorate the vision over time and cause eye strain, which can lead to headaches, migraines, and other physical symptoms.
Protect Your Eyes
If you spend a lot of time around blue-light emitting devices, you may want to consider ordering a pair of specialized glasses that are designed to block out blue light. We offer these in our Clarksville office, and we can even order you a pair to fit your current vision prescription. These glasses can be worn while you're at your computer (or any other time) to filter out blue light and thus protect your eyes.
In addition to wearing specialized glasses, you might also consider limiting your amount of time in front of blue-light emitting screens when possible. Try to follow the 20/20/20 rule, where you take a 20-second break every 20 minutes of your day to focus your eyes on something 20 feet away.
