What is Digital Eye Strain? 

Did you know on average we blink 12 times per minute, but only 5 times per minute when we’re viewing a screen? 

When we view screens, our eyes have to work harder to read the sharply defined images. This extra work causes strain on our eyes. 

If you don’t manage digital eye strain, it can have a significant effect on your general health. 

Common symptoms of digital eye strain include

  • Blurred vision 
  • Double vision 
  • Dry eye
  • Eye discomfort 
  • Eye fatigue 
  • Eye itchiness 
  • Eye redness 
  • Eye tearing 
  • Headaches 
  • Nack and shoulder pain 

Although all screens have an impact on our eyes, certain factors can increase the risk of digital eye strain. 

These factors include:

Keeping Your Eyes Protected
