Don’t suffer as a result of digital eye strain.
Extensive use of digital displays and devices can have an adverse impact on your eye health (and health overall). Symptoms ranging from headaches to dry or irritated eyes are typical of people suffering from digital eye strain.
Digital eye strain is the term coined to describe adverse symptoms associated with the use of computer screens, smartphones, tablets, and other devices with small displays. These symptoms include:
These symptoms aren’t as a result of digital devices so much as they are a result of the way we use them.
In most cases, modifying your environment and use of digital displays will alleviate symptoms of digital eye strain. This is especially true if you work on a computer.
Steps to take when using devices with screens:
You can now find software that will auto-adjust the colour and lighting intensity coming from your smartphone and computer. This reduces the visual impact on your eyes, filters out blue light, and makes the screen less impactful and jarring.
If environmental or usage changes aren’t noticeably impacting your digital eye strain, we can provide you with specialized glasses with lenses that reduce the impact of screens on your vision. If you think you require further treatment after making environmental modifications, book an eye exam and note your concerns during your booking.
