Issue: Over the past several months, you have noticed a significant increase in complaints of eyestrain, which workers are attributing to computer work. You’ve heard about “computer vision syndrome,” but you’re not sure what to do about these complaints.
Answer: As many employers are finding out, “computer vision syndrome” is becoming a major concern in the workplace. Experts say that the condition, which is different from eyestrain, is primarily caused by the combination of bright interior lighting and computer monitors. The reason is simple: the overhead lighting is adding glare to an already well-lit computer screen. The good news is that you can make changes to the workplace environment that should help combat the glare problem.
