The amount of time we spend on computer screens and doing near vision work has increased exponentially in recent years. And we all owe it to ourselves to understand how to best support the ever increasing demands on our vision. This stress causes many symptoms that are maladaptive such as eyestrain, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision, and decreased comprehension.
A comprehensive functional evaluation gives the best understanding of how our vision is being affected by the daily burden on our vision systems. Often an Rx for stress relieving lenses is prescribed to help alleviate these symptoms. Patients also benefit by learning ways to support proper visual habits including aids to help visual comfort while working.
