Reduce Digital Eye Strain

Do you get headaches or eyestrain from staring at your computer screen? At the end of a long day in front of your digital devices, is it difficult to focus on objects in the distance? You may be suffering from digital eye strain. With most of the population working on computers for multiple hours a day, Dr. Ton wants to share some information on the benefits of computer lenses.

Computer Lenses

According to the American Optometric Association, the average American worker spends seven hours a day on the computer, either in the office or working at home. That’s why digital eye strain or computer vision syndrome is common. Computer vision syndrome is caused by excessive digital screen use. Symptoms include blurry vision, sore and tired eyes, and neck and shoulder pain. Nearsighted people often complain of headaches, eye strain, squinting or fatigue when driving, playing sports, or when looking more than a few feet away.

Special lenses can be used to supplement your primary pair of eyewear. They can solve vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader, and cell phone use by enhancing vision at the near and intermediate distances.  

To avoid or reduce digital eye strain, follow the 20-20-20 rule. Every twenty minutes, concentrate on taking a 20-second break to view something 20 feet away.

Are you experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain? Ask Dr. Ton for more information during your next visit.

We are back!

We will start seeing patients again with new safety protocols and modified hours. In general, we are limiting our appointment schedule to minimize the number of patients in our office, screening our staff and patients for symptoms and fever, offering curbside dispensing and requiring face covering. All patients will need an appointment before coming to the office. We will provide additional instructions during the phone confirmation. Because this is new to us all, please be patient (pun intended) as we work to create a safe environment.

Please continue to order contact lenses on our webstore and receive free shipping with $100 order. Order Contacts Here! We greatly appreciate your support!

In keeping good health, Dr. Ton and Staff
