Employees who are fit, both visually and mentally
EYEBAB Care is developed for companies who want to make a preventive effort and ensure that their employees thrive and are fit, both visually and mentally, even in a busy workday.
In an EYEBAB Care project, the work computer will serve as the focal point for both testing and training. You can train where you are and with the PC equipment already used in the workplace. The EYEBAB Care online digital training is not time-consuming and can be completed through small in-house training sessions throughout the workday.
We are spending increasingly more time in front of digital screens, and the fact that we are in a digital age can cause many of us to have problems with CVS. CVS stands for Computer Vision Syndrome, which you can read more about below.
EYEBAB has combined the extensive knowledge on our vision, from the world of Functional Optometry, and combined that with the benefits from modern technology. Thus we have been able to create a framework that allows for testing, processing and optimization of vision and physical mechanisms.
Using EYEBAB Care, one works on breaking the monotonous movement patterns and optimizing the binocular vision skills. This visual fitness can help you keep up with the digital age to a greater extent. Disorders are remedied so that the best conditions are created for an active work life and an improved quality of life.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is a collection of symptoms related to prolonged work on screens – computers, tablets and smartphones. The most typical characteristics of CVS are:
- Eye irritation/dry eyes/eye pain
- Blurred vision
- Binocular vision problems
- Neck problems
- Shoulder pain
Work ability and endurance
When performing daily tasks, it is important that our vision, which is our most prevalent sense, is not overloaded. Any overload will typically affect concentration and endurance. In order to create the most optimal working conditions and vision conditions, there are factors that would be beneficial to focus on, such as:
- Vision acuity
- Need for correction/glasses
- Insufficient vision skills
Endless scrolling and headaches
Many of us can recognize these concerns, and find it very difficult to justify to our employers, if we need to take a day off because of for example a horrible headache.
That is also why many companies engage occupational health and safety representatives, to ensure that all of the necessary measures are taken, to make the best possible work environment in terms of e.g. ergonomics.
The future is digital, and it is a very demanding task for our binocular system to keep up with it. We spend hours every day just scrolling through various content – we can scroll for miles, and text for days.
A preventive approach to boost our binocular vision is therefore a great alternative to break the scrolling patterns, and offer our eyes more challenging movements that actually do good as well.
