Computer Vision Syndrome: Kids, Computers and Digital Eye Damage

It’s that time of year again! The seasons are changing and kids are heading back to school, often trading time at the playground or pool for hours in front of a computer screen. But are their eyes equipped to handle the change?

This year, nearly 60 million school-age children will use a computer or digital device for many hours a day, and that doesn’t include time spent in front of a TV or gaming system at home. This increased exposure puts them at greater risk for Computer Vision Syndrome, or CVS—a serious condition that can cause back and neck pain, dry eye, and even headaches.

Want more easy tips to prevent CVS? Listen to Dr.Schlussel’s latest broadcast:
