COMPUTER VISUAL SYNDROME

March 31, 2019

SÍNDROME VISUAL INFORMÁTICO

Visual Computer Syndrome is a symptom caused by looking at digital devices for an extended period of time throughout the day. This overexposure to the screen causes short- and long-term vision problems and discomfort. Computer, tablet, laptop or TV, all of which cause a variety of symptoms for people who overexpose themselves.

The main harmful effects are:

1. Eye fatigue and tension

  • Dryness and itching
  • Tired and blurred view
  • Headache

2. Macular degeneration

Blue light affects cell tissue in the center of the retina and can accelerate macular degeneration (DMAE).

3. Sleep disorders

Blue light interferes with melatonin segregation that regulates sleep cycles. Watching the powerful blue light on the screens at night makes the brain send us the wrong message: It's dawning, get going! What makes it difficult for us fall asleep And Rest.

According to the American Association of Optometry, leaders in the study of the effects of screens on our visual health, estimates that between 50% and 90% of computer users suffer from the symptoms of the so-called 'Digital Eye Strain'. The number of cases increases exponentially as digital devices become more and more integrated into our lives.

It is in our hand to stop the harmful effects caused by overexposure to the blue light of the screens. A sparing use of electronic devices and the use of blue anti-light glasses, are two simple practices with incredible positive effects.

see you soon!
