In this digitalized world, computer has become a regular need for us, be it in a job, or study, or during leisure time. This has brought with it a peculiar problem of eye strain. Working adults aren’t the only ones affected. Children staring at tablets, television and mobile, too have this issues, especially if posture and lighting conditions are improper.
Computer vision syndrome is a group of eye strain and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader and cell phone use. Research shows that 80-90% of people who spend 3 or more hours a day with computer, are liable to have at least some symptoms.
