Atlanta LASIK Surgeon Interviewed About Computer Vision Syndrome Prevention
Date:4/1/2013

Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) April 01, 2013

Dr. Farooq Ashraf, an Atlanta LASIK surgeon and founder of the Atlanta Vision Institute, was interviewed Monday about his thoughts on a recent article about Computer Vision Syndrome. Ashraf agrees with the article, which suggests taking a twenty second break from working on the computer every twenty minutes and focusing on something at least twenty feet away. This gives the eyes a chance to rest, and allows them to focus on far objects, preventing fatigue.

“This is good advice,” said Ashraf in his interview Monday. “I would also suggest that people who work on the computer for extended periods take time to make sure that they are blinking adequately. Blinking ensures that our eyes stay lubricated, and is also the eyes’ way of resting for a brief moment.”

Computer Vision Syndrome is a group of eye problems that are a result of using the computer for long periods of time. The longer someone uses the computer, the higher the level of discomfort they will probably feel. The following symptoms are associated with Computer Vision Syndrome: eyestrain, headaches, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain, and blurred vision. These symptoms can be a result of poor lighting, being too close to the screen for too long, poor posture, and screen glare. People are more likely to suffer from the listed symptoms if they have an uncorrected vision problem like presbyopia or farsightedness.

Dr. Ashraf is the founder of the Atlanta Vision Institute and a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in corneal and refractive surgery, as well as other treatments for astigmatism, glaucoma, cataracts, and other eye conditions. He obtained his advanced training in ocular surgery from Johns Hopkins University and has performed over 40,000 LASIK procedures. In addition to the Atlanta Vision Institute, Dr. Ashraf has also founded the Atlanta Vision Clinic in Dubai. For more information, visit http://www.atlanta2020.com.
