We all have those days when we start to rub our eyes, (gals, you frustrate yourself as you just smeared your mascara across your face) because you feel the dryness starting to take over from staring at a computer screen for hours on end. And in reality, it is not healthy to stare into that glowing screen we’re all mesmerized by for hours at a time.
But this is our world now. Right now, take a look around, no matter where you are. Your local coffee shop, work, public transportation — you will most likely see someone at a computer, staring at their phone screen, or even kids playing on a tablet. In today’s technological world, our lives have become dependent on these devices. Don’t even let me begin with how that’s horrible for your teeth!! (If you really want to know, head over to Sugar Fix Dental Loft and read all about why night guards are fixing problems that are associated with those devices!)
And right this moment, you’re reading this post on a digital screen right now. So yeah, case proven right here!
But for some of us, this is our career. We consistently need to be on these devices. And as we continue our days, we tend to notice that our eyes become strained and irritated throughout the workday. Did you know there’s a whole thing about this? Yes, Computer Vision Syndrome or ‘CVS.’ (Thanks, Wikipedia). This condition results from focusing your eyes on a computer or any other brightly displaying devices for, uninterrupted periods of time. Computer vision syndrome results from the high visual demands of computer work. This temporary vision condition is caused by staring at a computer screen for long periods of time without the proper eye protection.
Common symptoms of computer vision syndrome include blurred vision, redness in the eyes, back or neck strain, dry eyes, double vision, and dizziness.
What Are Computer Glasses?
Many of us already have regular glasses. But are you someone that has contacts or doesn’t need any help seeing, (except for me, I’m beyond blind).
It’s not surprising, but the average person works approximately eight hours a day in front of a computer. Having these long hours in front of the screen make us more prone to vision-related problems. And sadly, we’ve become accustomed to the fact that our eyes just feel tired and irritated at the end of the workday. Conversations have been had that people just close their eyes during the day to give those little guys a break!
The anti-reflective coating on computer glasses helps reduce the glare that bounces off the screen and light coming from the device. Glass color tinting is also a function that helps increase the screen’s contrast without making it too harsh for your eyes.
