Digital Eye Strain in Millwoods

OUR EYES ARE WORKING HARDER THAN EVER BEFORE

Digital eye strain, also called computer vision syndrome, is an unfortunate by-product of the digital age in which we live.

A recent survey by the Alberta Association of Optometrists found that Albertans spend a lot of time using digital devices, with the individuals surveyed spending, on average, between 8.5 and 12.5 hours per day staring at screens.

With statistics like these, it’s no wonder that our eyes can end up feeling dry, strained, and tired most of the time. If this sounds like you, book an appointment with Infinite Eyecare today. We can recommend some strategies to help you mitigate or even avoid digital eye strain.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS:

Digital eye strain symptoms may include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Headaches
  • Blurry or double vision
  • The inability to focus both visually and mentally
  • Red, tired eyes
  • Eyelid twitching
  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain

DIGITAL EYE STRAIN PREVENTION

The most obvious preventative measure is to decrease the time spent in front of your digital device. However, depending on the nature of your work, this isn’t always possible. To help keep your eyes comfortable, there are a few things you can do to help reduce or avoid digital eye strain.

We offer Eyezen lenses, enhanced single-vision glasses that filter out blue light and may help alleviate eye strain caused by the prolonged exposure to digital screens. Eyezen is just one of the lens brands we offer at Infinite Eyecare.

o help give your eyes a break, try to follow the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a break from your screen and look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This allows your eye muscles to relax and can alleviate symptoms of stress and strain on your eyes.

Small adjustments to your home office or workspace can help reduce eye strain. Things like: 

  • Adjusting your screen, so it’s below eye level and an arm’s length away.
  • Altering your screen brightness and font size.
  • Eliminating screen glare by adjusting overhead lighting.
    Repositioning your keyboard.
