Say Goodbye to Eye Strain

From computer screens to tablets to smartphones, our lives have become dependent on digital devices, with many of us spending several hours a day on them. This prolonged time spent focusing on digital screens has led to an increase in eye strain and related symptoms. Untreated or undiagnosed vision problems like myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism, can also contribute to discomfort during demanding tasks.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain can lead to symptoms like:

  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Headaches
  • Excessive blinking
  • Eye pain or irritation
  • Dry eyes
  • General fatigue

However, these symptoms can also be signs of other issues, so it’s vital to see your optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam. We can narrow down the cause and provide you with information and a complete treatment or management plan if needed.

Treating Digital Eye Strain

The best thing you can do for your eyes is to take a break. This chance to rest and refocus can significantly reduce the strain your eyes experience when focusing at one distance for an extended period.

The 20-20-20 Rule

To remember to give your eyes a break, many optometrists recommend using the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes focus on something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This allows your eyes to relax and helps reduce fatigue.

Other steps you can take to reduce symptoms of digital eye strain include:

  • Positioning your screen at arm’s length and 20 degrees below eye level
  • Setting your screen’s colour and contrast to suit your eyes and environment
  • Setting your screen’s brightness to match the brightness of the surroundings
  • Minimizing glare by positioning your screen away from a bright window, dimming the lights in your office, or using an anti-glare screen cover
  • Remembering to blink
