Most Americans spend hours in front of some type of screen every day. Unfortunately, this leads to a great deal of exposure to blue light with no protection to minimize the impact. Blue light can be found in the world around us and can be healthy in regulated doses. However, the constant flow of blue light produced by digital devices can lead to a condition called computer vision syndrome or digital eye strain. Our optometrists at Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglass Co. are here to help ease the symptoms of computer vision syndrome through blue light lenses and a few tips to reduce your eye strain.

Symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer vision syndrome can result in multiple symptoms that can vary. Typically these symptoms include the following:

Headaches and pain in the neck or shoulders

  • Eye fatigue
  • Eyestrain
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Dry, itchy, watery eyes
  • Trouble falling asleep
  • Double vision
  • Blurry vision

Additionally, computer vision syndrome can impact your mood and memory, contributing to depression and memory loss. At its worst, it can lead to damage to the retina, causing long-term vision problems.

How an Optometrist Can Help

Visiting an optometrist is always an important first step when you notice any changes in your vision or eye fatigue. Our eye doctors at Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglass Co. will perform an exam to get a full understanding of the symptoms you are experiencing.

If you spend hours each day in front of a device, we will likely recommend blue light lenses. These will help block the blue light, meaning your eyes will not have to work as hard and you can typically sleep easier. We will also recommend other types of treatments or lifestyle changes to help treat your symptoms. For instance, try taking a 20-second break for every 20 minutes of screen time by looking at something that is 20 feet away. This will help reset your eyes with some much-needed rest.
