Eye sight really bad

Hi Guys,

I'd like to introduce myself as Alex, I'm 17 Years old, and I'm a internet entrepreneur, i run several large on-line companies, and obviously with them being on-line,i have to look at computer screens all day ( mostly dual monitors )... - I've noticed recently that i can't see as far, and my vision is quite blurry / impaired, i was wondering what i can do to fix this, maybe cut down on the hours I'm on the computer, get glasses?... in the long term would laser eye surgery fix the problem?

Many Thanks

Common things being common, I would see either an optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if glasses/contact lenses will correct your vision adequately.  If they are unable to do so, they will likely look into other medical causes accounting for your impaired vision and proceed to work you up based on any abnormal findings that come up.
