objects, such as computers, that are 1 to 3 feet away for
extended periods of time.

enjoyment of your day and reduce the quality of your work.

drift outward, forcing your eyes to constantly work to turn
the eyes back in. This process often leads to a number of
symptoms like headaches, blurred vision, eye strain,
double vision, burning and tearing.
symptoms of VFS are:
• Dry eyes
• Sensitivity to light
• Neck pain
• Blurred vision
• Loss of productivity
• Decreased vision at night.

instrument sewing or reading.

computer work, people tend to adjust their posture which may
result in back or neck pain.
