CVS or computer vision syndrome is a health issue more and more discussed inside the female communities.
The women chained to a desk inside an office, or the ones working more than 5 hours/day in front of a computer observe that after a period of 6-8 months, they start to experience different sight issues.
Psychologically, the female sex is bound to focus extensively when an urgent task is at hand.
This is why the women doing office work that involves computer use are more likely to experience the CVS.
The large majority of women report blurry vision, headaches, dizziness or even nausea and most of them live with these symptoms without knowing the real cause and the easy way to get rid of them.
80% of the women working in front of a computer, using an e-reader or an iPhone experience the same problems. The source is not the “radiations” people love to blame when saying that computers are bad for you, but the concentration effort we put our eyes through.
Adapting to visualize the computer information is very difficult for the people with permanent eye conditions such as shortsightedness.
The reading effort is doubled and the adaptation must be done to two distinct factors: the computer light and the light inside the room.
The most common solution to minimize the effect of the syndrome is to take your eyes from the monitor every 5 minutes. This is a simple method doctors recommend, meant to relax the eye, encouraging blinking and hence hydrating the cornea.
If the problem persists you must consult a doctor. However, make sure that you do not go to consultation in the evening when the eye muscles are tired beyond any limit because the doctor will not be able to prescribe the right treatment.
The ideal solution is to wear special computer glasses and use the computer with moderation. Make sure you pause during the activity and if this becomes an issue at work make sure you insist upon being allowed to rest your eyes.
On a long term the CVS can do a lot of damage to your eye vision.
