Recognizing Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain can affect your eyes after long sessions in front of a computer, phone, tablet, or other digital screen. 

Common signs and symptoms of digital eye strain can include: 

  • Watery or dry eyes
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches

Even if your symptoms are mild, they can worsen over time and cause other vision issues if not properly addressed. Contact us to see how our team can help.

Your Comfort Comes First

Digital eye strain can be tricky to navigate—the first step is visiting us for a comprehensive eye examination. Our team can examine your eyes thoroughly, discuss symptoms, review your screen time, and recommend some management methods to help you find relief.

Focusing on your screen for long periods without a break can dry your eyes and cause strain. Giving your eyes a break is essential, and the 20-20-20 method allows for some well-deserved rest.

The 20-20-20 method involves: 

  • Looking away from your screen every 20 minutes
  • Focusing on something 20 feet away
  • Looking at the object of focus for at least 20 seconds

The lighting of your workstation can help prevent digital eye strain. Lighting that is too dim or too bright can affect your eyes negatively, and finding a good balance is essential.

Adjusting your screen brightness to prevent squinting or straining your eyes is helpful. Glare is also a contributing factor to eye strain and is important to consider at your workstation.

Viewing your computer screen at the correct distance and angle can help prevent digital eye strain.

Your screen should be about arm’s length away from your eyes, and you should keep your screen at eye level or slightly below.

Productivity Starts with Healthy Eyes

At Royal Eye Care, we strive to help you overcome the effects of digital eye strain. It can be easy to get lost in your work, and frequent breaks and management techniques can help keep your eyes healthy.
