Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is "the complex of eye and vision problems related to near work which are experienced during or related to computer use." We will assess your workplace environment (ergonomics) as well as conduct a number of tests to determine visual efficiency. Complaints associated with computer use comprise Eye, Vision, Behavioral and Physical components, each of which will be examined.
If you are interested in a CVS work-up, please specify this when setting up your appointment.
Dry eye syndrome (Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca) is the result of an inflammatory process affecting both the lacrimal gland (the gland that produces tears) and the surface of the eye. As a result, people who suffer from dry eye syndrome have either reduced tear production or excessive tear drainage. This causes discomfort and can damage the surface of the eye. Symptoms may include dryness, stinging, burning, itching, scratchiness, excessive tearing, blurry vision, and sensitivity to light.
More than 10 million people in the U.S.A. suffer from moderate to severe dry eye syndrome, and an estimated 15 to 20 million have a milder form of the condition. Nearly 5 million people are unable to wear contact lenses because of dry eye.
