Give Your Eyes a Break 

If you’ve suffered from digital eye strain before, you know just how bothersome it can be. Digital eye strain can leave you feeling numerous symptoms that can disrupt your ability to live your everyday life and perform your daily tasks. 

Although it is called digital eye strain, it can result from focusing on any object too close to our face for an extended period. When we engage in near vision tasks for too long, our eyes can become strained. 

At The Optical Connection, we have several dry eye therapies to help manage your dry eye symptoms. Book an appointment today to discover what we can do for you!

What Causes Digital Eye Strain?

Digital eye strain can be caused by focusing too much on a close object for too long. When we focus on a near task or object, we tend to blink less, which can compromise our tear film, leaving our eyes feeling dry and fatigued. 

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

If you find that your eyes get achy, tired, or generally uncomfortable after performing a near-vision task like staring at a computer, you may be suffering from digital eye strain. Common symptoms of digital eye strain include:

  • Sore, tired eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Overly dry or watery eyes
  • Headaches or eye pain 
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty concentrating

Managing Digital Eye Strain

At The Optical Connection, we have several strategies to help bring you relief when it comes to digital eye strain. Depending on the source of your eye strain, your relative symptoms, and the results of your eye exam, we may recommend any of the following solutions:

  • Using artificial tears for temporary relief
  • Following the 20-20-20 rule, which ensures your eyes are getting the rest they need
  • Making environmental, behavioural, or lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking or drinking more water
