What You Use Every Day (Every Hour!) is HURTING Your Eyesight...

 

Have you noticed your eyesight/vision getting blurry at the end of the day? Do you find your eyes tired when you’re reading or watching TV at night? Have you noticed annoying headaches creeping up more often?

If you’re experiencing any of these issues (or all of them), you might be surprised by what’s really causing it.

The truth is that one of technologies biggest advances is also the leading cause for poor eyesight, painful headaches, and sleepless nights. That harmful technology? You phone and computer screens.

Now wait! Before you jump off this article thinking that it’s hopeless—because we all know that we aren’t giving up on using our phones and computers!—allow me to explain how these screens are hurting your eyes and what you can do to fix it.

What you’re experiencing is something that the medical community has labeled Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Yes, this is a real thing that is cause real problems for the vast majority of the population.

Computer Vision Syndrome happens when you spend more than 4 hours a day in front of a computer screen, which can weaken your eyesight. Meaning, that by the end of the day, everything looks blurry. Most people report difficulty driving home from work at night. They can’t see as clearly as they did earlier in the day. Headlights cause painful/jabbing headaches. Their heart beats faster and their hands grip the wheel harder; it’s their body reacting to the stress of feeling unsafe while driving because they can’t see well.

That’s scary! And that’s just one example of how Computer Vision Syndrome can affect your daily life.

For some people, the headaches of blurry vision come at a high cost. Those annoying headaches turn into debilitating migraines. If you’ve experienced this, then you’ve likely found yourself popping a few more aspirin than normal. Maybe you’re putting an icepack on your head a few nights a week. Or, sadly, you might be like many other people who have gotten a stronger prescription pain medication from your doctor just to try to feel normal. You’re not alone!

It makes sense why you haven’t been able to fix these chronic pains and issues yet. Phone and computer screens are ubiquitous/prevalent/everywhere in our daily lives now that it doesn’t dawn on us they they could be the culprit. But for many people, they are.
