I am an experienced tutor, having taught over 25 students, ranging from ages 11-18 in a number of subjects.

Studies have found that the majority of computer workers experience some eye or vision symptoms. However, it is unclear whether these problems occur to a greater extent in computer workers than in workers in other highly visually demanding occupations. A national survey of doctors of optometry found that more than 14% of their patients present with eye or vision-related symptoms resulting from computer work. The most common symptoms are eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and neck or shoulder pain
