Factors of Digital Eye Strain

Digital eye strain is a relatively new condition, and is based on research showing the effects that the use of digital devices has on our eyes. There are many different factors to consider when looking at the consequences digital devices have on the health and comfort of our eyes.

Individuals with (undiagnosed) vision problems such as astigmatism, presbyopia, myopia, or even farsightedness may be at a higher risk of suffering digital eye strain. Eyes with pre-existing conditions can have a hard time dealing with digital eye strain.

We are naturally exposed to blue light from the sun, but computer screens also emit this type of light. Certain amounts of blue light are good for us and even help us to regulate our circadian rhythm – but too much can cause issues with our brain’s ability to rest.
One of the reasons that blue light is problematic in terms of digital eye strain is because this type of light is more difficult for the eye to focus than others.

Another consideration in digital eye strain is how effectively you are using digital devices. Failing to use blue light filters, proper posture, and time limits or regulations for the use of digital devices can exacerbate your symptoms.
