People who have uncorrected eye problems are more likely to suffer from computer vision syndrome. Approximately seventy-one people with computer vision syndrome reportedly wear contact lenses or glasses. Although the condition does not appear to cause permanent vision problems, it can affect productivity at work and cause discomfort. Vision problems may become worse after time and should be treated immediately. Be sure to make regular trips to the optometrist to have eyes checked if spending too much time in front of a computer is of concern.
