Digital Eye Strain Relief in North York


Improve Your Comfort & Productivity

Since the turn of the new millennium, the majority of the tools we use to work, connect, and play have now gone digital, which means a lot of us are only just a few feet away from a digital screen at all times. This has put an unprecedented amount of stress on our eyes, so much so that a name has since been coined for it: digital eye strain.

Digital eye strain can cause your eyes to become extremely uncomfortable, affecting your performance and productivity at work or school.

How Digital Screens Affect Your Eyes

Digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome, is caused by your eyes taking in too much blue light. Blue light is emitted from every screen and can be found to be the source of eye discomfort after spending a lot of time in front of a screen.

Over time, extensive blue light exposure can cause symptoms of dry eyes and even myopia in children.

Treatments for Digital Eye Strain

If you are experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain, there are a few different things you can do to help mitigate your symptoms.

One of the first steps should be to consider speaking to your optometrist for help treating your digital eye strain. Their knowledge and expertise can set you on the path towards comfortable vision.

The next step to take would be to analyze the relationship you have with your digital screens. If you are spending extended periods of time looking at a screen, then you should be following the 20-20-20 rule. This requires you to focus on an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, which can help reduce the amount of strain your eyes might experiencing while looking at a screen.

Other measures can include readjusting how you sit at your desk or changing your screen settings to match the colour and brightness of your surroundings.

At Complete Family Eye Care we can recommend  blue-light blocking lenses to combat digital eyestrain. We offer a range of state-of-the-art blue-light blocking lenses. Book an eye examination to determine if this option is for you!
