COVID-19 Pandemic Causes Vision LossThe global pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. We are all familiar with social distancing and spending copious amounts of time confined to our homes and apartments. In isolation, countless individuals spend more time than ever on their computers, tablets, and smartphones. Could it be that the COVID-19 pandemic causes vision loss in some people? What are the consequences of more than a year of increased screentime?
"Reading and looking at a screen has never been a problem, until now," said Scott French. "I was experiencing headaches and dizziness. I couldn't read for more than a few minutes without severe eye strain. When I finally went to an optometrist, I was prescribed corrective lenses for the first time in my life."
