Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is the name given to a group of eye problems and vision-related symptoms caused by prolonged use of hi-tech digital screen devices such as computers, tablets, e-readers and cellular phones.

Our goal is to prevent these symptoms by prescribing the correct eye wear to increase your personal visual efficiency. This enables you to work better and not have to react to symptoms, but to prevent them.
First, we'll make sure that your eyeglasses or contact lens prescriptions are correct and suitable for using a computer. Special eyeglasses for computer use can help improve your visual efficiency and increase your ability to function in front of screens whether you are a child or a C-suite professional.
Others who routinely wear corrective lenses can use a modified or separate prescription to work in front of a digital screen.
To help ease your eyestrain, we also offer special lenses that block the blue light emitted by digital screens, ensuring your visual comfort, clarity and health for the future.
