How Can an Optometrist Help?
If you believe you have been suffering from computer vision syndrome, our optometrist will conduct an eye exam to determine if your symptoms are due to computer vision or another eye disorder. Our eye doctor will also conduct an eye exam to determine if you have another vision disorder that can be worsening your symptoms, such as astigmatism, myopia, or hyperopia. Using vision tests and eye exams will help us determine the best treatment option for your computer vision syndrome.
What is the Treatment for Computer Vision Syndrome?
Our optometrist will recommend treatment options for computer vision syndrome such as lifestyle changes to alleviate symptoms when you're working in front of a computer. Our eye doctor might recommend you take breaks every twenty minutes when looking at a computer screen.
