Do you spend the majority of your waking time in front of a digital screen?

Many people will answer 'yes'. Digital eye strain has become so commonplace that it's even been given a medical term: Computer Vision Syndrome. Symptoms include redness or irritation of the eyes, blurred vision, dry eyes, general fatigue, back and neck pain and headaches.

 

What causes Digital Eye Strain? 

When one is reading off of a screen, the eyes have to constantly refocus and reposition in order to the process content. As a result, one doesn't blink as often. Blinking moisturises the front of the eye. The average person blinks around 16 times per minute. This is halved when using a digital device. General fatigue can also occur from staring at screens and straining to read small fonts and images.  

 

There's also the factor of blue-light that is emitted from digital screens that can cause premature ageing of the eye. (Click here to read more about blue light.)

 

Torga Optical has a number of products that combat Digital Eye Strain and help to protect your eyes against too much exposure to blue light - click on the options below to find a potential solution for you:

Office Tech Lens Design

What happens to your eyes as you get older? When the eye is youthful, the lens inside the eye is flexible and the muscles that pull the lens into the correct position to focus are strong and effective. It's the muscles and the lens working together that allows the eye to change focus from objects that are far away to objects that are close. As the eye ages the cells in the eye degenerate and the eye muscles lose strength. As a result, there is a loss in focusing ability for near vision. This is called presbyopia. What is the solution? After a full eye examination has been conducted by your Torga optometrist, you may receive a prescription for corrective lenses that will assist you to see more comfortably. Your prescription could include single vision reading glasses or multifocal lenses, both of which address presbyopia very effectively.

However, the regularity of use and proximity of digital devices to the eye can result in too much exposure. Exposure to blue light at night especially, via digital devices, can result in (amongst other things) disturbed sleeping patterns. Milder exposure to blue light can be treated with tinted lenses. For more prolonged exposure, blue light blocking lenses and UV420 protective lenses are the most effective when it comes shielding your eye from the harmful effects of blue light that is emitted by digital devices.
