20. EYE STRAIN

MANY OF THE SAME GOOD EYECARE IDEAS FOR FULLY SIGHTED VIDEO DISPLAY USERS, CAN ALSO BE HELPFUL FOR LOW VISION CONSUMERS WHILE LOOKING AT COMPUTER MONITORS AND ELECTRONIC MAGNIFIERS.

HEADACHES, TIGHT NECK AND TENSE SHOULDERS, AS WELL AS DRY, SORE, WATERY AND TIRED EYES, ARE TYPICAL WARNING SIGNS OF EYE STRAIN.

FURTHER SYMPTOMS CAN INCLUDE BLURRED OR DOUBLE VISION, PLUS, LIGHT SENSITIVITY AND TROUBLE FOCUSING.

FOR PARTIALLY SIGHTED INDIVIDUALS, THIS COMPUTER VISION SYNDROME (CVS) CAN SOMETIMES BE RELIEVED WITH IMPROVED ERGONOMICS, GLARE CONTROL, WORK BREAKS AND THE PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE OF A LOW VISION SPECIALIST.

OF COURSE, ALL OF THIS IS IN ADDITION TO APPROPRIATE ASSISTIVE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY.
