What is Asthenopia?

Also called eye strain is an ophthalmological condition that manifests itself through nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, pain in or around the eyes, blurred vision, headache and occasional double vision. Symptoms often occur after reading, computer work, or other close activities that involve tedious visual tasks. Giving the eyes a chance to focus on a distant object at least once an hour helps.
