How Digital Eye Strain Can Affect You

Digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome, can settle in due to prolonged exposure to electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets. Symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, and blurred vision can derail your productivity and comfort. 

We aim to educate and help our patients overcome digital eye strain through in-house methods and at-home management techniques.

Innovative Eyewear Options

We know that dealing with digital eye strain can be challenging and often frustrating. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent and manage digital eye strain, including choosing the right type of glasses and lenses. 

Our team can help determine what the right option is for you based on your individual needs.

Zeiss Single-Vision Digital Lenses

Zeiss single-vision lenses are designed to provide clear, sharp vision for people with digital eye strain.

They feature a special design that reduces distortion and improves contrast, making it easier to read, work, and use electronic devices without experiencing eye fatigue. Zeiss single-vision lenses can be a good choice for people who need glasses for reading or for seeing things up close.

Blue-blocking glasses contain lenses designed to block blue light, a type of high-energy visible (HEV) light emitted by many electronic devices.

Blue light has been shown to disrupt sleep patterns and cause eye strain, so blocking it can help reduce these symptoms. Blue-blocking glasses can be especially useful for people who use electronic devices in the evening or at night, as they can help promote better sleep.

Anti-reflective coating can be applied to lenses to reduce glare and reflections, making it easier to see and reducing eye strain.

Anti-reflective coating can be particularly helpful for people who work in bright environments or spend a lot of time in front of computer screens. Anti-reflective coating can also help improve the appearance of glasses by making the lenses more transparent.

Digital Eye Strain Management Techniques

We have you covered for eyewear options to help manage digital eye strain, but we don’t just stop there. Our team also reviews digital eye strain management techniques that you can implement at home, that include: 

  • Taking frequent breaks and implementing the 20-20-20 rule
  • Using anti-glare screens to help reduce the amount of light reflecting off your screen
  • Blinking often
  • Viewing your computer screen at optimal angles

Our experienced team can help provide personalized recommendations on protecting your eyes and optimizing your vision.
