Should I Wear Screen Glasses (Even if I Don’t Need Glasses)?
Nowadays, it’s completely normal to stare at a screen for most of the day. Whether you're working in an office, watching Netflix or scrolling through your Instagram feed, modern life increasingly revolves around digital devices.

Have you ever experienced headaches, blurry vision or eye strain from prolonged screen use? You’re not alone.
You’re probably suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome, or CVS, a term used to describe eye and vision problems caused by prolonged use of digital devices. Almost 60 million people suffer from it globally.
