Digital Eye Strain

Do you suffer from sore eyes, headaches and eye strain?

We are increasingly reliant on our digital devices and most occupations involve a lot of screen time every day. This can cause many problems with your eyes and visual system. 

The symptoms of Digital Eye Strain include:

  • Red and sore eyes, particularly towards the end of the day
  • Headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Blurry vision
  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Dry eyes

The blue light emitted from all digital devices has been shown to interfere with healthy sleep patterns. Disruptive sleep not only makes you grumpy and tired, but is linked to diseases like depression, obesity and diabetes.

We now use screens recreationally, not just at work.  Digital devices include, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, smart watches and even your TV. How many of us look at our smartphone as soon as we wake? And it’s often the last thing we look at before falling asleep!

At Sharpe & Fowler we have a solution for all the technology-junkies out there!  We can assess how your eyes are affected by digital device use and tailor a solution just for you. Contact us today or book an appointment for an assessment.
