#blubworldtech - Is your 'Screen' harassing you?

In the age of technology, Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain has become common and chronic. With people hooked on to their mobile phones, computers, tablets, laptops and televisions, for work and for entertainment, there is little to no respite to eyes and the brain.

Computer Vision Syndrome is described as a group of eye and vision-related problems due to prolonged use of electronic gadgets. Children and adults may experience uneasiness in eyes and visualization problems when exposed to digital screens for unmitigated periods. The level of discomfort is bound to increase if the mind, body and soul are not given enough time to ease out and recuperate.

Discussed below are some easy tips to help improve and maintain your vision (which is pretty important for you to see the beautiful things in this world):

1. Take conscious efforts to blink eyes multiple times to keep them naturally clean and moist

2. Ensure that your electronic device viewing space is well lit and ventilated (So, no cell phones at night!)

3. If your exposure to screen is unavoidable, try using anti-glare screens or wear computer glasses to minimize glare and reflection from light sources
