Preventing Digital Eye Strain

The best thing you can do to prevent digital eye strain is to remember to give your eyes a chance to rest. The American Optometric Association suggests following the 20/20/20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break, and shift your gaze to an object that is at least 20 feet away from you.

You may also want to consider investing in a pair of glasses or contact lenses specifically designed to reduce digital eye strain. These lenses use special designs, powers, tints, or coatings, to filter out blue light, reduce glare, and maximize your comfort and visual abilities.

For more information about digital eye strain, and strategies you can employ to avoid it, please speak to your optometrist during your next appointment.
