Working at your computer for any length of time can cause visual distress and discomfort, unless you take time for some simple corrections.  If you're in the forty-something age group, you may need specialty prescriptions for working at a computer.  Studies have found that by age forty, people have only half the tear volume to wet eyes and less than half the focusing strength they had at age thirty.

When working at a computer with bifocals, you must tilt your head back and lean in to see the computer screen which, in turn, often causes neck and back strain.  So, what's the solution to this dilemma?  It may be to get some occupational glasses.  This is a second prescription used expressly while at the computer screen.  Check with your optometrist or ophthalmologist about whether this might be an option for you.  

This whole are of eye and muscle strain is important time management because it's been estimated that by the end of the 90's approximately 50% of all office workers will be using a computer on a regular basis.  60% of the ten million patients examined in the last few years for visual VDT symptoms (the Video Display Terminal symptoms) had a diagnosable vision condition vs. environmental factors.  

The bad news is there are many symptoms of stress for VDT users.  However, according to most recent information, the good news is, none of these symptoms are permanent or cause long-term damage to eye health.

*Today's suggestions are part of an on-going series based on information from Dr. James J. Hilligan and Dr. C. Steven Kocks, optometrists in Saginaw, Michigan.
