Some symptoms of CVS include headaches, blurred vision, neck pain, fatigue, eye strain, dry eyes, irritated eyes, double vision, vertigo/dizziness, polyopia, and difficulty refocusing the eyes. A descriptive survey research design was used to assess the knowledge regarding computer vision syndrome among nursing students. A sample of 60 nursing students was selected using convenience sampling technique. Data was collected using structured questionnaire to assess knowledge regarding computer vision syndrome. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study concluded that majority of nursing students have Inadequate, to moderate, knowledge. There is a need to organize Educational program on computer vision syndrome.
