What is digital eye strain?

Digital eye strain is the collection of vision-related problems, including blurred vision and dry eyes, caused by extended screen time.



We blink less than normal when looking at screens



Blinking is critical in tear renewal and tears keep your eyes lubricated and comfortable.



When your eyes aren’t replenishing tears, it leaves them feeling dry, gritty and can even cause blurred vision.

TIPS FOR DIGITAL EYE STRAIN

Follow the
20-20-20 rule

Every 20 minutes, stare at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. It’ll give your eyes a break from screen use.

Sit at the
right distance

Sit 20 to 26 inches away from your computer and tilt your computer screen so the top is slightly farther away than the bottom.

Stay
hydrated

Drink plenty of water every day to help prevent dehydration.
