DIGITAL VISION SYNDROME
PROVEN RELIEF FOR DIGITAL VISION SYNDROME.
Looking at computers and phones is hard on your eyes. For some, using digital devices or doing detail work can lead to neck pain, headaches and eyestrain.
Using advanced SightSync® technology, we’ll customize specialty neurolenses to relieve visual stress.
It’s estimated that 2 in 3 people experience computer vision syndrome. Today’s digital lifestyle demands a lot from our eyes and we often spend most of the day and evening focusing on computer monitors, tablets & screens that are 3–4 feet away from us.
This can take a toll on our visual system and results in various symptoms:
sensitivity to light
loss of productivity
decreased vision at night
WHAT CAUSES DIGITAL VISION SYNDROME (DVS)?
When you look up close, your eyes naturally converge (turn in)-much more than they do when you look in the distance.
For many people, the eyes actually don’t converge, and they tend to lag, almost as if there are bungee cords pulling their eyes outward. As they look up close, the eyes need to pull in, working against the bungee cords. This constant tension forces unnecessary work on the visual system.
Over the course of a day, this tension builds up until people experience headaches, neck and shoulder tension, and all of the other symptoms that come along with DVS.
Patients tend to blame their symptoms on posture,stress, or not blinking enough. Your eyes may actually be responsible for these symptoms.
