Computer Vision Syndrome - American Medical Centers (Almaty)

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
