dc.description.abstract In today's culture, digital screen use is vital to everyday living. While all age groups use technology extensively, the average adolescent will spend seven hours daily using digital screens. Juveniles are at greatest risk for developing dangerous visual deficits caused by extensive screen time due to their high usage rates. Over sixty million people globally suffer from visual symptoms related to computer screen use, known as computer vision syndrome. This research topic is extremely relevant due to the increase in digital screen use, and the importance of informing as well as protecting younger generations from potential ocular hazards. Based on research that studied various environmental factors, including blue light emission and positioning tactics, one can conclude ocular deficits in adolescents resulting from extended screen use may be largely avoidable. It is important for eye care physicians and technology users to understand the symptoms associated with CVS and protect ocular health.
