    Background of the Study: Vision could be a complex perceptual process that is often mistakenly believed to be purely mechanical. The complexity of human vision implies that almost a fifth of the brain is dedicated to visual processing cells. Eye discomfort could be common ill health experienced by computer users. Often, people are unaware of existing visual problems which will only come to light once they begin using computers due to the demand for the sensory system of this work is very high. Ophthalmic exercise reduces the danger of disease. Ophthalmic exercise is important for the nice vision of someone. However, the necessity of data and attitude may cause reduced eye problems. Proper ophthalmic exercise and adequate vision conditions play a significant role in reducing eye problems in developing countries. Aim: The present study aims to assess the effectiveness of ophthalmic exercises on visual discomfort among computer workers in a selected company, Chennai. Material and Methods: A quantitative true experimental research design was conducted among 50 computer workers. A random purposive sampling technique was used to select samples. Self-administered structured questionnaires were used to collect demographic data, and visual discomfort was assessed. The ophthalmic exercises were taught to the company workers and they were asked to perform the exercise every day for 1 week. After a week, the visual discomfort was reassessed. Result: The present study also shows that the demographic variable age had shown statistically significant association with the post-test level of visual discomfort among computer workers at P < 0.05 level, and the other demographic variables had not shown statistically significant association with the post-test level of visual discomfort among computer workers. Conclusion: The study thus indicates that the computer workers had a reduction in visual discomfort score after ophthalmic exercise and is also an effective method to prevent further complications that can be caused due to the computer vision syndrome.
