October is Computer Learning Month
iPad, Galaxy S5, iPhone 6, Kindle, Nook, PS 3, Nintendo 3DS … these are the computers of the 21st Century.
Computer Learning Month is a time for focusing attention on the important role computers, software and other technologies play in our lives, particularly in our children’s learning and their future. However, many computer users have Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Studies show that 50% – 90% of computer users experience the symptoms of CVS. There is also increasing concern that prolonged exposure to the blue light wavelength of the visible spectrum may play a role in Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). These high energy rays are emitted from hand-held devices, LED computer screens, and CFL and LED light bulbs.
The good news is that the eye and vision symptoms and problems of CVS can usually be alleviated by good eye care and/or by changes in the work environment. Our doctors can recommend ways and prescribe computer or office lenses to help eliminate or alleviate the eye fatigue that occurs with computer use. The Hoya Tact Lens with Recharge no-glare treatment is an excellent choice for anyone who spends time on the computer. Please phone our office today for your comprehensive eye health appointment.
