That sore, tired feeling in your eyes after a few hours of looking at a computer screen may be Digital Eye Strain, also known as Computer Vision Syndrome. Common symptoms include:
- Blurred vision
- Eye fatigue
- Dry eyes / irritated eyes
- Double vision
- Frequently losing place when switching from computer to near work
- Neck pain / shoulder pain
Computers and other digital devices emit high-energy short-wavelength blue light and glare. Over exposure is linked to digital eye strain, increased risk of macular degeneration, and sleep cycle disruption.
At Norwalk Eye Care we design computer glasses using a combination of lenses to filter blue light and block glare to give you more comfortable and productive eyes!
