If you’re ever up past your bedtime staring at an internet connected device watching time-shifted television, movies on-demand, or original online video programming and you begin to have positive feelings towards Ben Stein because, even though he made “vast amounts of money by luring the unsuspecting into overpaying for a financial product they should under no circumstances buy,” he did star in those Clear Eyes commercials and you could really go for a few drops because you’re vision is blurred from continually looking into light emitting diodes for several hours, then you probably suffer from Computer Vision Syndrome (aka CVS).
But don’t worry! The condition only temporary and one of the largest not-for-profit vision care companies in the United States has a web series that can help.
VSP Vision Care’s EyeFiles features a 40-something-year-old mom from central casting discovering and/or dealing with her children’s eye issues on a sound stage with three model rooms from Ikea and help from VSP optometrist Leanne Liddicoat. The installments are part hip-but-still-kinda-staid-yet-informative PSAs and part marketing material for VSP Vision Care’s services.
EyeFiles probably won’t win any Streamy Awards, but the program is definitely more than tolerable and, better yet, could be helpful to online video viewing audiences. Check it out for eye care hints and tips next time you strain an eye from watching too much new and fantastic online video programming.
