Help Your Eyes Keep up with Digital Life

The devices we use are essential to our day-to-day life—whether we’re binge-watching our favourite show, completing a last-minute assignment, or spending some time video-calling family.

However, spending so much time on these devices could lead to an uncomfortable, irritating condition known as digital eye strain. If you’re struggling with digital eye strain, please get in touch with us today and we’ll help find the soothing relief you deserve.

What Is Digital Eye Strain?

Digital eye strain is a type of eye strain that develops because of long device use. Common symptoms can include:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Wateriness
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurry vision
  • Double vision

Depending on your posture and ergonomics, digital eye strain may also cause back and neck soreness. 

However, digital devices aren’t the only source of eye strain symptoms. Eye strain can develop whenever you spend a long time doing any visually-demanding task. You may also experience these symptoms while reading, writing, or driving.

Managing Your Symptoms

There are several ways we can help manage your digital eye strain symptoms. One of the most common ways is by using eye drops, but there are some strategies you can use to find relief, like:

  • Adjusting your workplace ergonomics to ensure your screen is just below eye level and arm’s length away.
  • Taking regular breaks while working for long periods (the 20-20-20 rule).
  • Reducing glare by angling your screen away from light sources.
  • Adjusting your brightness and contrast settings

We recommend speaking with our team if you experience digital eye strain regularly. There may be a chance you have an uncorrected vision problem that could be contributing to your symptoms.
