What is digital eye strain?
It is a series of symptoms that occur as a result of persistent use of one or more digital screens over a long period of time.
These symptoms include itchiness, tired eyes and soreness.
What causes it?
Digital screens on electronic devices are often close to our eyes and emit a lot of light, some of which is blue light, which has a very short and very powerful wavelength.
Furthermore, when users spend a long time looking at these screens, their blinking frequency is lower and they do not blink completely. This prevents the tear from spreading evenly over the eye, which means the tear film is thin and unstable.
This is often aggravated by spending long spells in closed spaces (offices) where the air is very dry, which worsens the symptoms of dry eye.
Is there any way to relieve the symptoms of digital eye strain?
Yes the symptoms can be eased. This involves using specific products with hyaluronic acid that help provide a sense of relief and restore the balance of tear film.
