Put A Stop To Eye Strain

With the advent of hand-held device technology, digital screens, and computer-centric living, it is no surprise that our eyes are becoming increasingly tired and strained.

Digital eye strain, also known as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), is affecting children and adults in increasing numbers, in the form of blurry vision, dry eyes, headaches, and other symptoms.

What Causes Digital Eye Strain?

Digital eye strain can be characterized by focusing on a digital screen or device for an extended period of time. Blue light and glare can make it difficult for the eye to properly focus, causing stress and strain on the visual system.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

  • Dry, red, or irritated eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Headaches
  • Sore neck, shoulder, and back muscles
  • Fatigue

No Device? No Way!

Since ditching your smartphone or cutting your screen time may not be an option, there are some things you can do to help alleviate sore, tired eyes.

Simple exercises such as the 20-20-20 rule, slow blinking, and figure 8 exercises can help to temporarily give your eyes a needed rest. Every little break you can give your eye muscles, albeit small, can help with long-term eye stress and strain.

Wavelengths emitted from blue light are uniquely scattered, causing the eye to work extra hard to focus. We can recommend blue light filtering lenses or computer glasses with special filtering lenses that can help focus your eyes, alleviating eye strain.

Making the slightest adjustments to your workspace can help relieve digital eye strain and stress. Things like ensuring your screen is an arm’s length away, correcting the angle of your monitor, and repositioning your keyboard can all help reduce symptoms.
