Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)

First of all i would like to give a short definition of Syndrome. A syndrome is the association of several clinically recognizable features, signs, symptoms that occur together. Computer Vision Syndrome refers to a condition that results from uninterpreted  focusing of eyes on computer screen. Some of the symptoms of the this syndrome are headache, dryness in eyes, irritated eyes, neck pain etc. It is not only seen in professionals but in children above ten who either play games or are busy on social networking sites.
To remain relax the human eye blinks about 16-20 times per minute but as we are very much engrossed in the Computer we actually forget to blink and the blink rate decreases to 6-8 times only.
If not corrected at time it can lead to severe dryness in eyes , major headache, strain and muscle spasm . So,In order to keep away from CVS, a 20x20x20 exercise has been recommended by Ophthalmologist Dr. Jeevan Ladi . In this we should look away from computer screen after every 20 minutes and look at a thing placed at 20 meters for 20 seconds with continuous blinking .
And i hope all of you practice that and remain healthy .
