What Causes Digital Eye Strain?

Digital eye strain, or computer vision syndrome, is associated with the overuse of digital screens, but your symptoms can become worsened by a number of different factors.

These symptoms may be caused by:

  • Improper viewing distance 
  • Poor posture
  • Screen glare
  • Poor lighting
  • Uncorrected vision problems

Reducing Digital Eye Strain

When you visit Royal Vista Eyecare with concerns of digital eye strain, one of our optometrists will ask you questions and perform an assessment to figure out what’s causing your symptoms.

Based on these results, we can make recommendations to alleviate your symptoms. Until then, you can follow these tips to protect your eyes:

  • Position your screen about an arm’s length from your eyes
  • Make an effort to blink more often 
  • Position your screen approximately 20 degrees below eye level
  • Adjust the colour & brightness settings on your device to match your surroundings 
  • Minimize screen glare by dimming the lights or installing an anti-glare screen protector
  • Follow the 20-20-20 rule & look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds, every 20 minutes 
  • Make an effort to blink more often
