Give Your Eyes a Break From Screens

Research has found that individuals who spend more than 2 hours each day using digital devices are at risk for digital eye strain. On average, Americans spend just under 4 hours on their phones, tablets, and computers each day, so it’s no wonder digital eye strain is on the rise.

If you are at risk of developing digital eye strain, speak to our optometrists during your next appointment and find out what you can do to safeguard your vision, eye health, and comfort.

Digital Eye Strain Symptoms

  • Blurry vision
  • Double vision

  • Red eyes
  • Twitching eyelids
  • Headaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Preventing Digital Eye Strain

The most important thing you can do to prevent digital eye strain is remember to give your eyes regular breaks. To ensure your eyes get a chance to rest, the American Optometric Association recommends following the 20/20/20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and shift your gaze to an object that is at least 20 feet away from you.

If you spend a lot of time using digital devices, either at work or at home, you may also want to talk to your optometrist about investing in a pair of glasses or contact lenses specifically designed to reduce digital eye strain. These glasses and contacts are made using specialized designs, tints, coatings, or powers that are specifically designed to reduce glare and block out blue light, thereby maximizing both your comfort and your visual abilities.

Do you suspect that you suffer from digital eye strain? Speak to our optometrists during your next appointment and find out what you can do to safeguard your vision, health, and comfort.
