Mini blinds can limit computer glare that leads to eye problems
Oct 6 2010
Computer vision syndrome (CVS), or eye problems related to extensive computer use, can affect both children and adults if they don't take steps to rest their eyes during long stretches at the computer, according to Microsoft Home Magazine.
Mini blinds can reduce the glare on computer screens.
The symptoms of CVS include dry or sore eyes, as well as headaches and blurred vision. But as irritating as the condition may be, it isn't a problem that can't be reversed. Dr. Paula Gaudet, past president of the Nova Scotia Association of Optometrists, told the magazine that as many as 25 per cent of her patients have CVS.
"CVS makes you feel lousy but it won't cause permanent damage to the eye," she said.
One way to minimize CVS is to check for sources of glare on the computer screen. "The monitor acts as a mirror, reflecting shiny walls and light sources. Reposition it or use curtains, window blinds or special anti-glare screens to eliminate distracting reflections," the magazine recommends.
Aluminum mini blinds have a simple design that fits any décor in homes or offices, and can easily solve the problem of computer glare from nearby windows. They are easy to use, affordable and can match any color scheme.
