Eyes sore after computer work?
Computer Vision Syndrome, also referred to as Digital Eye Strain, describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader and cell phone use. Many individuals experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing digital screens for extended periods. The level of discomfort appears to increase with the amount of digital screen use.
We recommend the "20/20" rule. Take 20 second breaks every 20 minutes of computer or reading or near work and focus on something 20 feet away. Also try and be aware of blinking during prolonged computer or near work. Lack of blinking can contribute to dry eyes. #cobourg #soreeye #dryeye #optometrist
