Computer Vision Syndrome

Most jobs nowadays involve some degree of computer use. Unfortunately, this can result in eye strain or injury. In order to avoid this, you’ll have to properly protect your eyes both in front of and away from the computer.

Symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain:


  • Tired eyes
  • Strained feeling eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Dry eyes
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder and neck pain

Try the following techniques for less eye strain. Make an effort to live an eye-healthy lifestyle!


  1. Use correct ambient lighting
    2. Adjust your work environment to encourage good posture and alignment
    3. Pay attention to your monitor settings to minimize glare
    4. Give your eyes frequent breaks throughout the day

Give your eyes frequent breaks from staring at screens. One helpful technique is following the 20-20-20 rule:


1.Take a break every 20 minutes
2.Look at a non-digital object at least 20 feet away
3.Focus on that object for 20 seconds
5.Don’t forget to blink often!
6.Consider computer glasses or reflective lenses
7.Get a comprehensive, periodic eye exam

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Almaty.
*During busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours
