Binocular problems in Students and Adults
Symptoms of binocular problems in adolescents and adults are often enhanced by prolonged work in front of the computer.
Our visual world with exactly computers, iPad, cell phones and TV sets even greater demands on vision, and most people are occupied with screen work in everyday life. The great strain on vision does, for some people, result in an evil circle, where by tiring the eyes by close-up work, the vision worsens, and in this way one has to strain the eyes even more. Binocular vision problems as headache, reading problems and discomfort can be the result.
It is never too late to have your eyes checked for binocular problems, as the training of these problems can improve the quality of life markedly.
