Accommodative Dysfunction

Our eyes have a set of lenses which adjust automatically when we look far away, up close and back again. This is called accommodation, which allows us to see clearly at all distances. If there is a problem with the ability to sustain focus for long periods of time while reading or if the eyes are unable to quickly change focus, this is called accommodative dysfunction.

Accommodative dysfunction can cause:

  • Blurred Vision
  • Reduced accuracy
  • Posture and viewing distance adjustments
  • Inconsistent work
  • Reduced efficiency and productivity
  • Difficulty maintaining clear vision
  • Difficulty shifting focus from one distance to another
  • Visual discomfort and eye strain
  • Pain in or around the eye
  • Headaches
  • Avoidance of reading and writing
  • Difficulty with visual concentration and attention
  • Fatigue
  • Moving print
