Digital Eye Strain Causes

Most people can relate to an intense focus on your work, but it can make your eyes work harder and result in strain. 

Signs and symptoms of digital eye strain may include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Eyestrain
  • Neck and shoulder pain 
  • Headaches

The effects of digital eye strain can be made worse by preexisting conditions such as myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.

Managing Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain can be tricky to navigate, and the first step is to visit us for a comprehensive eye exam. Our team can discuss your symptoms, review your digital device habits, and recommend some management methods to help provide some relief.

Practice the 20-20-20 Rule

Sitting in front of a digital screen for long hours can strain and dry out your eyes. Focusing on your work is important, but a break is essential. 

That’s where the 20-20-20 rule comes in.

The 20-20-20 rule involves: 

  • Looking away from your screen every 20 minutes
  • Focusing on something 20 feet away
  • Looking at it for at least 20 seconds

Adjusting the brightness of your digital device and the lighting in your workspace can help prevent digital eye strain. 

Glare can also contribute to eye strain, so applying a matter cover over your device’s screen can help reduce glare.

Your seating and viewing position can make a big difference. Your screen should be about an arm’s length away from your eyes, and the viewing angle should be slightly below your eyes.

The blue light emitted from digital devices may worsen your digital eye strain symptoms. We can provide eyewear that filters this harmful blue light to prevent eye strain caused by digital screens.

Balancing Work & Rest

Digital eye strain management is about balance. At Rock optiX, we want to help our patients avoid the discomfort that comes along with digital eye strain. Practicing prevention methods and taking frequent breaks can make all the difference.
