Computer Vision Services is a new consulting firm that focuses on improving the productivity of computer users by reducing environmental triggers of Computer Vision Syndrome. Studies have shown that up to 93% of computer users report symptoms of eyestrain, blurred vision, dry eyes, headaches, and neck and back aches. Further studies have shown that improving the visual ergonomics of the working environment can increase a computer user's productivity by as much as 19%.

While some of the symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome can be addressed by routine eyecare, there are a number of elements in the workplace that should be evaluated in person. Glare from a window or even too much light at a work station can cause discomfort and squinting. A poorly positioned computer monitor can cause neck and back aches and even dry eye symptoms. And there are even basic work habits that can keep a computer user fresh and alert throughout the day, thereby avoiding eyestrain and computer blur at the end of the day.

Because Dr. Bittel is a practicing Optometrist, he has extensive knowledge about the visual system that can be applied to his evaluations. And while there are number of companies that will perform general ergonomics evaluations to try and prevent conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, only about 20% of computer workers ever suffer from musculoskeletal symptoms. More than 4 times as many computer workers will report symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome and it is important for their well-being, employee morale, and a company's bottom-line that the causes of these symptoms be addressed.

Computer Vision Services utilizes a unique approach towards improving productivity in a time where companies have fewer employees responsible for larger workloads. Based in Yorba Linda, California Computer Vision Services offers specialized evaluations to businesses of all sizes. For more information about Computer Vision Services, visit
