"I have people coming in all the time complaining that their eyes get tired, they have headaches and blurry vision. Some people think it's because they're tired from working all day, but most of the time, it's the computers..." - Dr. Dryan Holland Pediatrician Bristol MD

Though not all symptoms may seem to be related to an eye strain, specifically speaking about one caused by a computer, you would be surprised that many symptoms that do not directly effect your eyes are considered to be symptoms that are associated and caused by eye strains. Computers play a major role in the causes of eye strains and if treated early can stop the symptoms from getting worse but more importantly from other symptoms manifesting themselves. Here are some symptoms one should look out for that can be a result from an eye strain that was caused by personal computers.
