Rest Your Weary Eyes

There’s no escaping that much of our lives revolve around looking at a screen, whether you use one for work or scroll through social media on your phone at lunch.

Researchers have discovered that more than 50% of American digital screen users deal with the uncomfortable symptoms of digital eye strain. If you’re one of these Americans, talk to our friendly team about how we can help you find relief from your symptoms.

What Is Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain is also commonly known as computer vision syndrome. This form of strain shares many common symptoms with standard eye strain, like: 

  • Sore eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes

The major difference is the link between digital eye strain and devices like computers, phones, or tablets. You may not experience lasting problems from this condition, but it can be uncomfortable at the time and make tasks difficult or impossible to perform.

Dealing with Eye Strain at Home

Digital eye strain can often be dealt with at home. One of the best ways to deal with eye strain is by taking a break when spending extended lengths of time on the computer.

For example, practicing the 20-20-20 rule is a great way to plan breaks. Every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to look at something 20 feet away from you. This gives your eyes a chance to refocus on something else.

Other tips to try include:

  • Adjusting your screen level, so it’s straight ahead and approximately 15–18 inches away.
  • Setting your screen slightly lower than eye level to prevent you from opening your eyes too wide.
  • Increasing the lighting in your room.
  • Reducing screen glare from overhead lighting and windows as much as possible.

Review Your Options with Your Eye Doctor

If you find that your eyes become sore and strained no matter what you do, don’t hesitate to talk to our team and book an appointment with Dr. Price. We can assess your eyes to determine what is causing your eye strain and recommend treatments.
