Digital Eye Strain is defined as the physical eye discomfort felt after two or more hours in front of a digital screen. Essilor Lenses – Eyezen is here now to protect you from getting digital eye strains. A combination of factors including the proximity at which we view digital screens, the frequency and length of time of this use, and physical responses to screen habits, have conspired to cause visual discomfort.
Digital Eye Strain originates from the over exertion of the ciliary eye muscles. When focusing on close objects, the eyes accommodate to try and create the clearest possible image. The eye accommodates by flexing the ciliary muscle which changes the curvature of the crystalline lens. Digital eye strain comes from this prolonged contraction or “flexing” of the ciliary eye muscles.
Here are some of the most common conditions you can experience by staring at screens for too long:
- Dry eyes
- Eye Strain
- Tired Eyes
Harmful Blue Light is all around you, due to the increasing use of devices and new lighting technologies inside and sunlight outside. Harmful Blue Light is one of many risk factors such as age, genetics, diet, lifestyle, and occupation that may contribute to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a leading cause of severe vision loss and blindness in adults over the age of 60.
