DIGITAL EYE STRAIN

Digital Eye Strain results from from prolonged computer, tablet and mobile phone use. Australians spend an average of 9.4 hours in front of a screen on a daily basis. Research shows that only 2 hours in front of digital screens is enough to cause digital eye strain.

EFFECTS OF BLUE LIGHT

  • Blue light is all around us. It is emitted by the sun and artificial light sources, including digital screens such as your  smartphone, tablet, computer, etc. 
  • Blue light may be beneficial to our eyes in moderation as it is necessary for regulation of the sleep/wake cycles, mood and cognitive performances.
  • But blue light can also be the cause of premature eye ageing. Overexposure to blue-violet light can damage the retina and potentially increase the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
CAUSES OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN

  • uncorrected focussing or coordination vision problems
  • poor lighting
  • glare from light sources reflecting off the digital screen
  • variable viewing distances and screen position
  • poor posture
  • a combination of these factors
  • reduced natural blinking
SYMPTOMS OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
  • headaches
  • blurred vision
  • dry eyes
  • neck and shoulder pain
