Washington: iPads too can contribute to “computer vision syndrome”, a set of eye problems caused by staring at a screen for long periods of time without taking a break.According to the American Optometric Association, symptoms of computer vision syndrome include eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and dry eyes. Many of us may already have the syndrome and not even realize it.People who spend two or more continuous hours in front of a computer or digital media each day are most at risk for computer vision syndrome, according to Wake Forest Family Eyecare.New York optometrist Dr Justin Bazan, who serves on Better Vision Institute, told HealthPop that this syndrome is caused by two factors.Computer, tablet and smartphone screens are typically held close, which causes eye strain. Also, these screens always show pixilated images, which cause our eyes to shift in and out of focus without us even realizing it. That’s weakening the eye’s focusing muscles, the doctor says, causing the eyes to work hard to maintain focus. Bazan added that if the screen is small, people tend to hold it even closer to their eyes, CBS news reported.
