Workplace Eye Awareness Month - Part 1: Digital Eye Strain

Updated: Mar 9



Have you ever noticed that at the end of a long day at the office,

your eyes are dry, itchy, burning, tired, and your vision is blurry




This is caused by the increase in computer use in our lives. We go from work at the office, to our homes, to watch TikTok on our phones or read on a tablet. We tend to blink less when we are looking at screens all day which can cause our eyes to be dry, itchy and feeling tired.


If you are noticing any of these symptoms after a lot of screen time there are a few things that you can do to help:


  • Blue light glasses

  • Anti reflective lenses

  • The 20/20/20 rule- Every 20 minutes, take a 20 second break from looking at your screen and look 20 feet away.


You could be suffering from digital eye strain, come in for a comprehensive eye exam, and the doctor can recommend proper eyewear or any dry eye care products that will be beneficial to add to your daily visual hygiene.
