If you spend countless hours staring at computer screen or read e-book frequently, you'll want to read this. You could be suffering from computer vision syndrome, otherwise known as CVS.
Some of the symptoms are eye strain, red eyes, neck and back issues. Renee Clifford knows about this all too well. She spends all day in front of a computer screen. She isn't the only one. With more emphasis being placed on going green, more people are turning to e-books, which are becoming popular at both schools and libraries. This adds to the already compounding problem.
Rick Blackenship is the director of operations and Broome Optical. He says on computers "the background is fuzzy, the text is not as contrasted or distinct as reading a book. The pages in a book are nice and white, the lettering is nice and black and with the computer screen, it's a little bit of a gray area." The solution is a simple one... Computer vision glasses. The top portion is made for looking at a monitor and the bottom portion of the glasses is designed to see up close, specifically your keyboard.
