Squinting at computer, tablet, or mobile screens for hours at a time is a normal part of our lives in the 21st century. Unfortunately, eye problems associated with this activity are also on the rise. Even if you have never had eye problems before, you may have noticed computer vision syndrome symptoms after two or more hours of screen time. Signs include:
Even if your symptoms are mild, they can worsen and cause other vision problems if not addressed. Our optometrist, Dr. Khan, can help.
The severity and length of computer vision syndrome symptoms depends on how long you stare at the computer, your posture, lighting, glare, the angle of the monitor, and whether or not you have other diagnosed or undiagnosed vision problems. If you already suffer from astigmatism, farsightedness, presbyopia, aging eyes, and/or diabetic eye problems, your computer vision symptoms may worsen. This can even be the case if you already have prescription contacts or glasses. Many regular eyeglasses and contact lenses are not designed to deflect the problems caused by computer screens.

For patients already wearing contacts or glasses, new, more computer-friendly prescriptions are available. In addition to these treatment options, there are many things we can suggest to cut down on computer eye strain problems:

I am a City of Chino Hills employee and I went to Dr. Khan for a regular eye exam. Both her and her staff were very professional, efficient and extremely patient with all my questions and concerns. The whole process from the exam to getting my first pair of glasses went smoothly. I highly recommend her to all my other colleagues, friends and relatives. Actually my husband also made his appointment with Dr. Khan and was extremely pleased by the service received. Thank you Dr. Khan and your staff! You're awesome.
