What is Visual Fatigue Syndrome?


Visual Fatigue Syndrome is caused by focusing on objects, such as computers, that are 1 to 3 feet away for extended periods of time. 

The symptoms of Visual Fatigue Syndrome are not only bothersome, they can also be painful, reduce the enjoyment of your day, and reduce the quality of your work.

Symptoms Include:

Tired eyes



Neck and back pain

These are the symptoms many suffer after long hours on the computer or participating in “close-up” activities like working on small devices like a cell phone, playing an instrument, sewing, or reading.
