Computer vision syndrome covers the entire subset of eye vision complaints that occur as a result of prolonged use of mobiles, computers or tablets.
In today’s digital era, working adults have to spend a major part of their time on screen. They may get so much engrossed in work needs that they may sideline the strain and pressure developing over their eyes. It is only after some time that they report eye strain symptoms.
Some of the possible risk factors that may lead you to develop computer vision syndrome are
• Dry eyes
• Working on a computer without any gaps
• Poor posture
• Working in poor lighting
• Screen Glare
Computer vision syndrome is a repetitive motion injury caused as a result of repetitive motion performed by eyes.

This symptom similarity performed helps provide a quick effective relief.
Cause of Computer Vision Syndrome
When you work on screen, your eyes have to perform repetitive motions. This might include typing from paper onto the screen, reading text on the screen, viewing and processing images, etc.
These repetitive movements may in some time lead to following computer vision syndrome symptoms
• Blurred vision
• Double vision
• Dry eyes
• Red eyes
• Eye irritation
• Neck pain
• Back pain
• Color distortion
These symptoms can be more noticeable when you already have eye troubles. Therefore if you work with these devices and have pre-existing eye troubles, regular consultation with an eye specialist is recommended.
Also, mid-age working people should take care as overtime their lenses may become less flexible. Their ability to focus on near and far objects may also weaken.
To keep the eyes moist and relaxed, it is necessary to blink the eyes. But while working on the computer and focusing for long hours, the normal blinking reflex may get reduced.
This near focusing can strain your eye muscles and in some time may show up as computer vision syndrome symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies are very effective to provide relief from dry eyes symptoms.
