CAUSES OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
TREATING DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
Posture is key Keep your computer, phone or tablet screen an arm’s length from your eyes and 20 degrees below eye level. This reduces eye strain.
Blink blink blink! Keep your eyes hydrated by blinking. The average person blinks every 5 seconds, but when we’re focusing on a screen, we blink every 20 seconds. That usually leads to dry eyes which can be treated by artificial tears. Ask your optometrist in Calgary which eye drops are best for you.
Invest in glasses that are designed for computer use – Built-in anti-reflective coatings on the lenses allow for more comfort when viewing screens, fluorescent and LED lights. Ask your Calgary optometrist about eyewear designed specifically for computer use.
