CVS Risk
Factors

  • Prolonged screen use: your eyes have to work harder when staring at a screen, adjusting in different directions and changing focus. Our blink rate can almost half and will often squint, causing dry eye.
  • Computer games: gaming is linked to eyestrain, as the eye is forced to jump frequently between different points of focus.
  • Environment: poor lighting, screen glare and bad seating posture.

Did You

Uncorrected vision conditions such as long-sightednessastigmatism and presbyopia will
make you squint and strain your eyes when using
digital devices – increasing your chances of developing CVS.
