Computer and Digital Device Eye Strain
Digital screens can be hard on your eyes for a number of reasons. Using a digital device reduces your blink rate without you even realising, which can lead to dry, irritated or red eyes. Eye strain, tired eyes and blurred and variable vision can also be a result of looking at a digital screen for extended periods of time. If you get these symptoms regularly, contact your optician for advice.
Most of us spend a fair few hours using a computer or other digital device every day, and we all know this can sometimes have an impact on our eyes. Choosing the right contact lenses will help keep your eyes feeling comfortable when you are using the computer.
TIPS FOR COMFORT
If you wear contact lenses, you may notice the effects of a digital screen on your eyes even more. Follow these tips to keep your eyes comfortable in front of your screen:
Blinking often and fully will help to keep your contact lenses moist.
Take a break
Try to take a break every 20 minutes, and look away at various distances from your device.
Drink lots of water to keep as hydrated as possible.
