YOUR VISION &
UPPER BACK PAIN

Tension in the neck and shoulders
can lead to eye pain, as tense muscles can
press on eye nerves at the back of your neck

SIGNS YOU MAY
HAVE A PROBLEM

Muscle tension in the upper back, neck and shoulders can lead to headaches or problems with your vision, as the flow of blood to the eyes is restricted.

You may notice:

  • Throbbing pain around the temples
  • Blurred vision
  • Migraines
  • Nausea or vomiting

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)

CVS may be exacerbated by poor posture while sitting at the computer or as a result of cradling the phone between the neck and shoulder.
