How Is Computer Vision Syndrome Treated?
If you are diagnosed with Computer Vision Syndrome, your Total Vision optometrist will develop a treatment plan that takes into account your lifestyle, your profession, and your overall specific needs.
Computer Glasses and Contact Lenses
Specialized computer glasses or contact lenses can be a highly effective treatment option. Computer glasses are made to improve the “intermediate” vision you use while at the computer. The ideal magnification of these glasses will depend upon your work station as the placement and distance of your computer makes a difference. For some patients, an occupational progressive lens is the correct treatment. This no-line multifocal can assist the eyes with more clearly seeing digital screens in the near and intermediate field of vision.
A non-reflective lens coating on your glasses can also provide relief from symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome. Along with a light blue tint in the lens, these replacement lenses can be a robust treatment option.
For some cases of Computer Vision Syndrome, a vision therapy or vision training program may be necessary. Your optometrist will teach you exercises and practices you can use to help thwart your symptoms.
