Sooth those square eyes
People who spend more than two hours a day on computers are likely to suffer from symptoms of eye strain known as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) and should be taking steps to protect their eyes, according to a leading health company.
The Macular Degeneration Support Organisation states that CVS affects millions of office workers, students and retired people world-wide.
OTC Pharma SA, which markets and distributes the high quality Similasan range of products in SA, recommends specially formulated Similasan Computer Eye Relief – homeopathic, sterile eye drops for the relief of tired, strained eyes from using a PC, watching TV, reading or driving.
“Similasan’s Computer Eye Relief is specially formulated to treat burning and strained eyes and should be used in addition to taking other precautions such as resting the eyes from time to time when focusing on very close distances,” said pharmacist and natural health expert Giulia Criscuolo.
“Computers may be one of the most profound inventions of the 20th Century, but technology comes with challenges too and eye strain is one of them. We simply have to take care of our eyes to avoid long-term damage,” added Criscuolo.
According to the study by the Macular Degeneration Support Organisation, the most common symptoms of CVS include headaches, difficulty focusing, burning, tired or aching eyes, general eyestrain, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity, and neck and shoulder pain.
The active ingredients in Similasan’s Computer Eye Relief are aimed at soothing and relaxing tired eyes and addressing symptoms of eye fatigue which may include eyestrain, eyelid spasms, achiness, blurry or double vision, redness, and sensitivity to light.
Similasan Computer Eye Relief eye drops are sting-free, contain no chemical vasoconstrictors and are safe for long term use with regular applications for as long as symptoms occur. Similasan Computer Eye Relief is available in health shops, pharmacies, Dis-Chem, Clicks, Pick n Pay and Medi-Rite.
