Computer Related Eye Strain
We are all spending more and more time on computers, smart phones, tablets and other devices. This adds a lot more strain on the visual system. Our eyes are relaxed when looking at a distance, but more stressed when focusing up close. Being on a computer device for hours a day adds to eye strain and fatigue. Our blink rate also decreases when focusing on our work. Headache and dry eye are a direct result of computer related eye strain.
The 20-20-20 rule is a good habit for heavy computer users. Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet or further (out a window or into the distance) for a period of 20 seconds. This practice allows our eyes to reset after staring and helps reduce computer related eye strain.
We have several products, such as office lenses, to help combat computer related eye strain. Call us to schedule your consultation today.
