Joanne Reitano is a professor of history at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City, Queens. She writes wonderful books about the history of the city and state, and has recently been spending many hours — sometimes all day — at her computer to revise her first book, “The Restless City.” But while sitting in front of the screen, she told me, “I developed burning in my eyes that made it very difficult to work.”

乔安·雷塔诺(Joanne Reitano)是皇后区长岛市拉瓜地亚社区学院(LaGuardia Community College)的历史教授,著有若干关于长岛市和纽约州历史的佳作。近来她花了大量时间——有时是一整天——坐在电脑前,修改她的第一本书《不安之城》(The Restless City)。但她告诉我,坐在屏幕前的时候,“我眼睛里有灼烧感,很难好好工作。”

After resting her eyes for a while, the discomfort abates, but it quickly returns when she goes back to the computer. “If I was playing computer games, I’d turn off the computer, but I need it to work,” the frustrated professor said.

让眼睛休息一阵子,不适感会消失,但等到她重新回到电脑前,很快又会感到不适。“如果是在玩游戏,那我会关掉电脑,但我要用它来工作啊,”雷塔诺沮丧地说道。

每天盯着电脑3小时 你也可能患上这种病

Dr. Reitano has a condition called computer vision syndrome. She is hardly alone. It can affect anyone who spends three or more hours a day in front of computer monitors, and the population at risk is potentially huge.

雷塔诺得了电脑视觉综合症。她并非孤例。任何每天花三个小时或更多时间对着电脑显示器的人,都有可能患上,受其威胁的潜在人群规模庞大。

Worldwide, up to 70 million workers are at risk for computer vision syndrome, and those numbers are only likely to grow. In a report about the condition written by eye care specialists in Nigeria and Botswana and published in Medical Practice and Reviews, the authors detail an expanding list of professionals at risk — accountants, architects, bankers, engineers, flight controllers, graphic artists, journalists, academicians, secretaries and students — all of whom “cannot work without the help of computer.”

在全世界,可能患上电脑视觉综合症的人多达7000万,这一数字只会越来越大。尼日利亚和博茨瓦纳的眼部护理专家撰写了一篇关于该病症的报告,并发表在了《医疗实践与评论》(Medical Practice and Reviews)上。报告作者详细列出了可能会患上电脑视觉综合症的专业群体——会计师、建筑师、银行家、工程师、空管员、平面设计师、记者、学者、文秘和学生——这一名单正日益扩大,所有这些人“离开电脑的帮助就无法工作”。

And that’s not counting the millions of children and adolescents who spend many hours a day playing computer games.

这还没算上成百上千万每天花很多个小时玩电脑游戏的儿童和青少年。

Studies have indicated 70 percent to 90 percent of people who use computers extensively, whether for work or play, have one or more symptoms of computer vision syndrome. The effects of prolonged computer use are not just vision-related. Complaints include neurological symptoms like chronic headaches and musculoskeletal problems like neck and back pain.
