An End to Digital Eye Strain Symptoms
Are you noticing headaches, tired and dry eyes, or shoulder aches and pains at the end of a workday in front of your computer? You might be feeling the effects of digital eye strain, which is also known as computer vision syndrome.
Digital eye strain can affect people who spend as little as 2 consecutive hours at a computer or other screens daily. Your symptoms can be worse if your prescription isn’t up to date. See us for an update to your prescription and to learn about the changes to your workspace that can bring you relief.
What Is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital eye strain describes the vision problems and eye discomfort that results from regular screen use.
This discomfort can occur due to uncorrected vision problems, including an outdated prescription or one that isn’t right for your work needs. In some cases, the symptoms might be a result of your eyes not working together correctly.
Digital eye strain can also be made worse by glare on your computer screen, poor lighting in your workspace, or poor posture.
