CONCLUSION

Vision Defects Pre-disposing to Fatigue

Small vision defects become important when the eyes are used heavily. Even mild long-sightedness or astigmatism (refer to links for detailed discussions) can make the internal muscles fatigue quicker than normal. These defects can result in various eyestrain symptoms such as tired eyes, eye ache, blurred vision, and in some cases, even headaches as well. Blurred vision from mild astigmatism can also lead to posture problems as the computer user often reacts by leaning the head forwards. Refer to Part I(B) for discussion on astigmatism and near work. Bad posture, for whatever reason, can lead to neck and back pain and headaches. These complaints are not uncommon among computer users.
