Tests and diagnosisBy Mayo Clinic staff
Your eye doctor will ask you questions about factors that might be causing your symptoms. Your doctor will perform an eye exam to check for eye problems, including testing your vision. Your doctor also may ask you about your work habits, such as your seating and computer positions, and the length of time you normally spend on a computer each day.
