Computer Vision Syndrome: Is Tech Harming Your Family’s Vision?

Last updated on March 5th, 2018 at 12:17 pm

Computer vision syndrome symptomsIn today’s technological society, most of us have become accustomed to using multiple devices that have screens – televisions, computer monitors, tablets, smartphones, hand-held gaming consoles, and the list goes on.

And as the number of screen devices has increased, so has our time spent staring at these devices. It’s not unusual to spend several hours of each day looking at these various screens and this has led to concerns about what affect all this screen time may be having on our vision…and on our kid’s vision.

Could your technology harm your vision? I was recently asked to address this concern on Fox 23’s Great Day Green Country.

  1. My husband had lasik to correct his vision and he’s a programmer and his vision is going again and we’re blaming technology. He said staring at that computer for hours is giving him monster headaches.
