The computer are the causes of eyestrain

More than half of all computer users experience eyestrain symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision and other symptoms associated with the use of computer screens. This is called "Computer Vision Syndrome". Visual stress from excessive close-up work may also cause complaints of general fatigue, reduced efficiency at work and higher error rates as the amount of time spent using computers increases.

We believe that the health of the eye depends on the well-being of one's entire body. Therefore, we provide recommendations for healing and preserving vision that encompass lifestyle, diet and nutritional products based on our analysis of peer review studies.
