Computer vision syndrome affects millions of people, but did you know that computers are not the only cause of this condition? Our world is filled with computer screens, tablets, and cell phones that take their toll on our eyes. At A. B. See Optical in Los Angeles, we can answer any questions and concerns you have about computer vision syndrome.
Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is eye strain caused by a computer or other digital screen. Everyone who uses these gadgets has likely experienced the effects of prolonged use. However, in some people, the symptoms do not go away. The causes of computer vision syndrome include:
Many people experience one or more of the following symptoms when they are suffering from CVS:
Neck and shoulder pain
You can reduce the effects of CVS by putting a few practices into motion, including:
Finding the lighting that is right for you and your eyes. This prevents staring into the glare of your digital device.
Taking breaks. Your eyes need a rest when using a digital device. Try taking a 20-second break every 20 minutes by looking at an object at least 20 feet away.
The need for comfortable seating is crucial when it comes to preventing computer vision syndrome.
Do not forget to blink!

Optician Shop Services
Eyeglasses have been helping people see more clearly for hundreds of years. But while previous generations didn't have many options to choose from, you'll find a stunning variety of frame shapes, styles, and colors at our optical shop. Miretsky can help you make the right selection for your facial shape, skin tone, and fashion sense. We can craft lenses to correct the full scope of refractive errors, from simple nearsightedness or farsightedness to multifocal or progressive lenses for individuals with presbyopia.
You may prefer contact lenses to eyeglasses, either all the time or in certain situations. Miretsky can equip you with the ideal contact lenses for your vision prescription, including both single-vision contacts and multifocal contacts. Our team at A. B. See Optical can also provide specialized contacts for hard-to-fit situations such as dry eye, keratoconus, and giant papillary conjunctivitis. Depending on your specific needs, you may be able to choose from soft lenses, rigid gas-permeable lenses, or a hybrid of the two.
Special activities call for specialty eyewear. Turn to our optical center for options such as prescription sunglasses, sports glasses, and safety goggles. We can provide lenses tinted to protect against certain light frequencies, shattering, UV rays, and the reflections that bounce upward from sunny, bright surfaces.
If you have lost some of your vision, visit our optical shop to browse our selection of low vision aids. From illuminated magnifiers to spectacle-mounted telescopes, we can provide your eyes with some extra help for reading, writing, watching TV, and other everyday activities.
Miretsky at our vision center will take the time to select the best frame size for comfortable wear. If you're getting multifocal eyeglasses, we will make sure that the different distance fields line up exactly where they should in relation to your pupils. We will also make adjustments as needed until you're satisfied. Contact us at (877) 538-0542 or visit our optical ship today!
