Gamer Eyesight - Healthy Eyes
Whether you're a hardcore gamer, an Internet junkie or a movie buff, spending hours in front of a computer monitor or TV screen can wreak havoc on your eyesight. If you've experienced eyestrain, dry eyes, fuzzy vision, headaches and/or neck and upper shoulder pain while gaming, chances are good you might have Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).
According to the American Optometric Association, the frequency and severity of CVS symptoms is directly related to screen time duration - the longer you spend gaming, the more severe the symptoms. Pre-existing vision problems like astigmatism, poor eye coordination or age-related vision loss can all aggravate the symptoms of CVS.
