Digital Eye Strain


Too much time looking at a screen can cause “digital eye strain,” which can mean everything from headaches to dry or irritated eyes to blurry vision. These effects usually go away on their own with enough time away from a screen – but the best thing for you or your child’s eye health is to prevent digital eye strain in the first place.


Symptoms of digital eye strain include:

  • Red, dry, irritated eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye fatigue
  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Headaches

A full, comprehensive eye exam is the first step to treating digital eye strain. Our doctors can recommend several ways to reduce eye strain according to your specific situation, including taking visual breaks, using proper blinking techniques, and correcting your posture while using spending time on social media or gaming.
