Computer VisionCare Plan Among New ALLtech Benefits Available for 2023

Did you know that nearly 60 percent of adults report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome (CVS)? To help small and growing tech businesses offer more to their employees, ALLtech is proud to start offering a new Computer VisionCare Plan in 2023 to help treat (CVS).

Many people aren’t aware they’re experiencing CVS, which may include one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Irritated eyes
  • Blurred or double vision

People spending two or more continuous hours at a computer or using a digital screen device every day are most at risk for CVS. The new ALLtech plan through VSP Vision Care Inc. covers an annual eye exam designed to detect eye health and vision issues caused by computer and digital device use, discounts on hardware and more.
