Get Relief from Digital Eye Strain

Simple tips for preventing problems associated with prolonged screen time.

Are you feeling the strain of digital eye fatigue? You're not alone! With the increasing reliance on digital devices more and more people are suffering in silence.

If you're a working professional or student, you know how important it is to stay connected to technology. But what you might not realize is that this constant screen time can have negative effects on your eye health.

Computer Vision Syndrome, commonly referred to as digital eye strain can leave you feeling tired, burnt out, and suffering from headaches, particularly after staring at a screen for prolonged periods.

Don't let digital eye strain hold you back from achieving your full potential at work or school.

Digital eye strain affects more than just your vision. The pain and discomfort associated with this condition can impact your productivity, mood, and overall quality of life.

If left untreated, the symptoms of digital eye strain can worsen over time, making it increasingly difficult to focus on work or enjoy leisure activities.

Fortunately, there are practical steps you can take to prevent and address digital eye strain. By adopting healthy habits and seeking professional advice, you can optimize your visual health and unlock you full potential.

Our Top Tips for Relieving 5 Common Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain.

  1. Eye fatigue: You know that feeling when you've been staring at your screen for too long and your eyes start to feel heavy? Combat eye fatigue by taking regular breaks and using the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away from your screen for 20 seconds and focus on something 20 feet away.
  2. Headaches: One of the most common symptoms of digital eye strain. To alleviate headaches caused by prolonged screen time, make sure you're sitting in a well-lit room and that your screen is properly positioned to reduce glare. This can also be a sign its time update your glasses, or get your first pair.
  3. Dry eyes: Digital eye strain can cause dry, gritty eyes. To prevent this, make sure you're blinking regularly and consider using eye drops to keep your eyes lubricated.
  4. Neck and shoulder pain: This symptom is often caused by poor posture and sitting in the same position for long periods. To reduce neck and shoulder pain, take breaks to stretch and adjust your posture regularly.
  5. Blurred vision: Pre-existing eye conditions such as astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, or presbyopia can cause your vision to become blurry, making it difficult to focus. If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is up to date.

Don't wait until your symptoms get worse. Schedule a digital eye strain exam and let us help you fight eye fatigue, improve your vision and enhance your productivity.
