The Effects of Increased Computer Usage

laptop 20with 20eye

With the ever increasing use of computers in our daily lives at work as well as for pleasure, it is important to note the effects that extended computer use can have on our visual system.  Extended use of  computer screens has been linked to complaints of ocular strain and dry eye symptoms.  Do your eyes ache while working on the computer, or do you note blurred vision, a sandy gritty feeling or increased redness? If you answered yes to any or all of those questions, we can help!  It could be that something as simple as a prescription for glasses or contacts could eliminate your problem or perhaps a change in your current prescription.  If you have dry , tired eyes we can help resolve that issue also.  We all work and we all enjoy our screen time but wouldn't it be nice to eliminate blur, dryness and discomfort. We would love the opportunity to help. For more details about computer vision syndrome  please go to the CVS section here on our website.

Contact or office today to schedule a screening and consult with our eye doctors.

A MESSAGE TO OUR PATIENTS

Because of the ongoing concern over the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC has implemented specific guidelines for all eye practices. As a result, we are postponing all routine visits until further notice and only responding to urgent and emergent needs at this time. Many of our offices may soon be closed, but we will attempt to handle patient needs on a case by case basis. If you need an extension on a prescription for glasses, contacts, or medication, please email us at [email protected]. If you have an urgent need, you can try to reach us at 910.527.9519 and we will do our best to get back with you within an hour. Please leave your name, phone number, and the office you last visited. If for some reason our phone service is not working and we do not respond within an hour, please seek outside care. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to returning to normal hours of operation as soon as it is safe to do so.
