Computer vision syndrome might sound like something a teenager came up with to get out of doing school work, but it's a real issue that a pair of Anti-Fatigue glasses hopes to solve. Resulting in blurry vision, eyestrain and discomfort, headaches as well as dry and scratchy eyes, people can suffer from more serious vision problems if left untreated.

OptimEYES, a group of Doctors of Optometry based in Ashburn, Virginia, encourages Anti-Fatigue glasses as a preventative measure. Dr. Seema Mohanan says, "Computer vision syndrome can affect anyone. Without prompt treatment, vision can begin to deteriorate. Additionally, for individuals who already suffer from astigmatism, farsightedness, or aging eyes, computer vision symptoms may worsen those existing vision issues."
