Mashable’s Great New Computer Vision Syndome Infographic

CVS MashableIf you spend a lot of time on the internet, then you probably are familiar with Mashable. It is pretty much the leading website covering online and high-tech trends. Mashable knows its readers and knows they spend a lot of time on computers and digital devices. Therefore, it continues to publish information about Computer Vision Syndrome – the group of visual conditions that affect people who spend many hours on the computer.

Last year Mashable published the article I wrote, 5 Important Tips for Better Eye Health in a Digital World. Recently, they published a great infographic (thumbnail on the right), with lots of useful information about how eyes and technology interact.

Check it out and, as always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to come in for an eye exam. 🙂

Dr. Nate Writes Computer Vision Syndrome Article for Mashable

Computer Vision syndrome Tampa

At Bright Eyes, many of our patients spend a lot of time at the computer. We try to educate these patients about Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) so that they can be as productive as possible.

As a recent guest writer for the tech website Mashable, Dr. Nate discussed in the article here, tips on how to protect your eyes in an increasingly digital world. An important example is the 20-20-20 rule, which advises that every 20 minutes take a 20 second break and look at something 20 feet away.

The response received is a further testament to the number of people who are affected by the symptoms of computer vision syndrome. The article has garnered over 2,000 “likes” through Facebook and over 2,300 tweets in Twitterville. With more and more information becoming available in tiny font at our fingertips, it is important that we are aware of the risks from both computers and handheld devices, and take the proper steps to protect our eyes.

If you find your eyes feeling tired or fatigued, your vision blurry or double or get headaches when working on the computer, be sure to have a thorough eye exam by your optometrist. If you would like a recommendation for an eye doctor in your area, feel free to ask us.
