What are the symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS)?

How you know if you have computer vision syndrome (CVS)? See if you experience the following symptoms:
  • dry eyes
  • neck and shoulder pain
  • blurry vision
  • headaches
  • eyestrain
CVS comes from prolonged use of any digital technology, like computers, tablets, e-readers and cell phones. It occurs because your eyes have to work harder when you look at a screen, which is so very different than looking at a printed page. It won't cause permanent eye damage, but your eyes will feel damaged -- dry and tired.
