Computer Glasses -Even If You Don’t Work on a Computer
Why Do My Eyes Hurt & Water For No Reason?
There is no doubt that staring at a screen for hours a day puts great strain on your eyes and can harm your vision. Whether you work in front of the blue light radiation of a computer all day, are a frequent gamer, or find that you spend a lot of time looking at your phone, tablet, or other digital devices, you must consider the effects that this radiation has on your vision and your overall health. The first and most common signs that a serious problem is occurring are when the eyes hurt and seem to be watering for no apparent reason.
7 Signs of Computer Radiation On Vision and Health
Some of the signs that indicate that your vision and health are being impacted by overexposure to the blue light radiation of digital screens include:
- Dry, painful eyes
- Irritated eyes
- Red eyes with tearing/watering that won’t stop
- Blurry vision

Over time, the impact of excessive amounts of blue light can affect memory, learning ability, performance, hormone levels, and may contribute to cataracts, obesity, and retinal damage. The professions most commonly affected include: photo/video, accounting, journalism, technology, design, and statistics.
How Computer, Phone and Video Game Overuse Affects Vision
