While working on a computer, we tend to stare at the screen and forget to blink. Usually, our eyes blink 16 to 20 times per minute. But studies have revealed that while using computers the number of blinking is reduced to 5-10 times per minute. This widening of the eyes and less blink rate causes evaporation of the tears causing the eyes to dry eye. Hence, it creates discomfort in one’s eyes to stay focused on the screen. Combine this with poor posture and poor lighting conditions can deteriorate the condition of the patient.

Apart from these, other reasons for this eye condition are:

  • Poor sitting posture in front of the computer
  • Poor lights producing reflections or glares, abnormally dim or bright images
  • Using improper eye-glasses while working on the computer
  • A direct blow of air or air-conditioner on the eyes

A few signs and symptoms of this Computer Vision Syndrome are:

  • Heaviness of the eyes with intermittent blurring of eyes.
  • Headache
  • Inflammation
  • Double vision (Dipolpia)
  • Irritation of the eyes
  • Dizziness while sitting in front of the computer etc.
