Computer vision syndrome (CVS) contains vision-related problems. These vision-related problems happen in the usage of all screened devices. Common signs of vision-related issues are eye strain, neck pain, headaches, tired eyes, irritation, burning sensation, dry eyes, and redness of eyes. All these issues appear due to the high usage of Computer screens. Computer use is becoming common. The accessible prices have increased productivity, and social modifications have governed computers, and a large proportion of the population is using mobile computing tools. However, it has also led to a risen number of patients complaining about ocular and non-ocular signs. Computer vision syndrome (CVS) can impact anyone who glances at computer screens for a long duration without rest. As for Computer vision syndrome (CVS) rising day after day, the sights related issues are also growing day after day. But we can slow down this rising problem by understanding Computer vision syndrome (CVS) prevention and recommendations. In this paper, we have tried to summarize significant recommendations and treatments for the deterrence and prevention of computer vision syndrome to remove CVS-related diseases.
