Computer Vision Syndrome Treatment With Our Optometrist in Silicon Beach

Our Silicon Beach optometrist, Dr. Tabiza, can diagnose computer vision and prescribe treatments to help you overcome it. It would be difficult to imagine our modern world without electronic devices and the displays that light up our daily existence. Desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones all make use of LED or similar technologies to display data that you may spend entire days absorbing. But it's possible to have too much of a good thing, and excessive periods of time staring at these displays can lead to an irritating problem known as computer vision syndrome.

Computer Vision Syndrome Treated By Your Silicon Beach Optometrist

Computer vision syndrome, or CVS, is associated with a variety of unpleasant symptoms including dry eye, blurry vision, eye strain and discomfort. It's caused by a combination of several different factors peculiar to the digital display technologies we use (and how we use them). Many display devices are situated too low, forcing you to adopt awkward head angles that strain the eye, neck and shoulder muscles. Dry eye may result from the fact that people blink their eyes at only one-third their normal rate when consulting digital devices, reducing tear production.

Glare is another major problem for CVS sufferers; this problem may stem from too bright a display setting, insufficient room lighting or both. It's also related to the blue-tinged light emitted by LED screens. HEV (high energy visible) light in the blue-violet part of the spectrum is hard on the eyes,and not only for the glare it creates -- this form of energy can also contribute to macular degeneration and cataract formation over time.

CVS Solutions for Silicon Beach, Playa Del Rey, Playa Vista and Surrounding Areas

Computer vision syndrome is too uncomfortable and potentially hazardous to ignore, so if you're suffering from this problem in Silicon Beach, Playa Del Rey, Playa Vista or surrounding areas, visit Westchester Eyecare Center. Our eye doctor will perform a detailed eye exam while asking you about your symptoms and digital device usage habits. If you do indeed suffer from CVS, our eye doctor may recommend treatment strategies such as:

  • Ergonomic changes to your device's brightness settings, room lighting and monitor angle

  • Clear filtered lenses to protect your eyes against HEV light

  • Anti-glare coatings to reduce glare and reflections from a digital screen

  • Tinted lenses that protect against both HEV light and excessive glare

  • Scheduling regular "blinking breaks" so your tear glands have a chance to rehydrate your eyes

  • Periodically gazing at distant objects to give the eye's near-focus muscles a rest

Schedule an Eye Exam With Our Silicon Beach Optometrist!

To treat your symptoms effectively, we need to make sure they're not associated with some other condition that requires separate treatment. (Dry eye, for instance, may actually be due to an unbalanced mix of tear ingredients.) Call today to schedule an eye exam with our optometrist so we can diagnose and treat your problem!

Testimonial

"Dr. T is very thorough with her eye exams. She asks all the right questions with what you need. She takes her time with her patients making sure they get what they need and get to know them. She's very professional but also approachable. You can ask her any eye related issues and she'll have answers for you. If she doesn't have an answer, which doesn't happen often, she'll get the right information for you. She also doesn't try to up sell you with what you don't need. I would recommend her to all my family and friends. In fact I've already done so and they're all very satisfied with the service."
