Eye Strain - The Struggle is Real
Updated: Mar 3
Our workplaces have dramatically shifted over the last year as we all find our new "normal." Many of us are working from home or adapting our in-person workplace to distanced and virtual activities.
We are not only spending more time working and learning but even socializing and engaging in front of digital devices - so there is an increased demand on our eyes.
As doctors, we are finding that patients are struggling with some major eye health issues that need to be addressed.
1. Eye Strain or Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)
The symptoms of this condition include tired eyes, headaches, neck/shoulder aches, jaw tightness, ringing in your ears, dry eyes, and light sensitivity. You may have some or all of these symptoms if you are suffering from CVS. Research in this area has been going on for many years, and there are several specific solutions to address these issues. Talk to your eye care provider to learn more about simple testing for CVS and a solution that could be right for you.
2. Dry Eye Disease
This disease has been around for as long as humans have been around. Symptoms of dry eye disease include dry, irritated, uncomfortable/painful, and itchy eyes. Did you know that watery eyes and blurry vision are also symptoms of dry eyes? New treatments - both at-home treatments and in-office treatments have been shown to make very positive impacts in relieving your daily symptoms.
The struggle is real! Adults and even children are struggling with these conditions that are impacting both our performance and our quality of life.
