Computer vision syndrome describes eye and vision-related problems that result from overuse of digital devices. The CDC reports that children now spend nearly 9 hours a day on digital devices.[3] Schools are increasing the use of electronic textbooks, which means your child is looking at their digital device for a large amount of the time that they are at school. Children then come home and watch TV or play on their cell phones, meaning more screen time and even more blue light exposure. The optometry times estimated that in 2014, 60 million children would use a computer or digital device for multiple hours a day, without including time spent watching TV or playing video games.[1]

Children are still developing and strengthening the muscles in their eyes, so the stress placed on their eyes from blue light is can make them feel even more uncomfortable as they are more susceptible to blue light. Viewing a digital screen makes our eyes work harder, which make individuals more susceptible to the development of vision related symptoms. This means that the longer your child spends on digital devices, the more likely it is that they will develop computer vision syndrome.

The most common symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome are:
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurred Vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Neck/Shoulder Pain
The symptoms may be caused by the following:
  • Blue Light
  • Poor Lighting
  • Glare
  • Improper Viewing Distances
  • Poor Posture
  • Amount of Time on the Device
  • Decreased Blink Rate

Most symptoms are temporary and will decline after the individual has stopped using the digital device. When this problem is not corrected it can lead to an increase in the severity of the symptoms.
