The computer vision syndrome is a major vision defect of the contemporary society, the Singapore edition of The Straits Times reports.
As Dr. Lee Sao Bing, the Director of Shinagawa Eye Center at Wheelock Place, said, individuals who work at the computer and regular users of tablets and smartphones are those who suffer from the computer vision syndrome more often. According to the expert, eye pain, fatigue, blurred vision, redness in the eyes are symptoms of the computer vision syndrome. Moreover, people suffering from the computer vision syndrome need to blink or close their eyes more often, as their eyes are dry and irritated.
Dr. Lee argued that contacts that provide users with both a high degree of hydration and a high coefficient of oxygen permeability are the best solution to the computer vision syndrome. Eye drops appear to be a proper solution too, as they oppose the symptoms of the computer vision syndrome and avoid any risks of irritation in so doing.
