Quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the level of knowledge and extent of computer vision syndrome (CVS) among computer users at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Abuja, Nigeria. Structured questionnaire was administered to 100 computer users aged between 18 and 40 years. The findings showed that 40% of the participants were aware of CVS; of which 27% had knowledge of the disorder. CVS was common among the employees, 74% of the respondents experienced at least one symptom of CVS. Headache and eyestrain were the most common symptoms of CVS among the studied population. The study concluded that there is a serious knowledge gap about CVS in the studied population which suggests a similar knowledge gap in the general population. It is recommended that further studies on a large scale should be carried out to explore the extent and knowledge about CVS in the developing countries for the purpose of designing strategies for bridging-up the knowledge-gap and minimize the impact of CVS on the people at risk.
