Regular use of computers for more than 3 hours in a day is known to predispose to Computer Vision Syndrome in the presence of one or a combination of the following factors:

  • Uncorrected vision problems
  • Poor lighting
  • Improper viewing distances
  • Glare from the computer screen
  • Poor seating posture

Pixels in a computer are brightest at the centre and become dim towards the edges. Due to this, the eye muscles have to adjust constantly to maintain focus. The computer can make the eye focus nearly 25,000 times in a single day, as a result of which eye muscles work 3 times harder and blinking reduces by 70%.

All these factors add to the burden placed on the visual demands while working on the computers and thus contribute to the problem.
