Eye Strain at the Office
Today’s office environment is virtually unrecognizable when compared to a similar setting 25-30 years ago. Though the hairstyles and fashions may be the most amusing differences to note, there is another that is far more important and which has completely revolutionized not only how business is done, but also what kinds of businesses exist. Until the middle of the 1980s, computers were still something of an exotic addition to some offices and their use was fairly limited. Now, it would be difficult for someone to get hired without at least passing familiarity with computers.
If your vision has been damaged by your work with computers, you may be eligible to pursue a workers’ compensation claim. The benefits that you may gain can help to cover the costs of medical care and lost wages incurred while you are recovering.

Symptoms of Computer Eye Strain

Over time, this can lead to significant loss of visual acuity and may require corrective lenses. Some symptoms that may indicate you are afflicted with this problem are:
- Neck pain
- Overall fatigue
- Eye irritation
- Impaired vision
