May 10, 2020

Digital eye strain (also known as computer strain syndrome) consists of eye and vision problems that result from prolonged exposure to a computer screen, tablet, e-reader or mobile phone.

Digital eye strain occurs from the BLUE LIGHT emitted from our screens. This screen light can also cause the following issues: dry, sore eyes loss of focus headaches difficulty getting to sleep blurred vision


Blue light naturally occurs in sunlight so we are exposed to it regularly, more recently it has been used in artificial screens so we are also exposed to it through our digital devices. This means that we are being exposure to blue light at all hours, where our bodies are used to receiving this light only during the day. This is where digital eye strain begins.

FIVE facts you did not know about BLUE LIGHT & DIGITAL EYE STRAIN

What can YOU do?

As chiropractors we are interested in taking care of the causes of your problems, not just the symptoms. We are finding more regularly patients presenting with headaches and postural strains from using technology daily. We also recommend using 20-20-20 rule whenever you are on a digital screen. For every 20 minutes of screen time, look away for 20 seconds at least 20 feet (6m) away. One of the other ways that may help with these symptoms are with blue light blocker glasses. We love the Baxter Blue range of glasses, as they work wonders for blocking the blue light and they look stylish too. Each pair of glasses filter out 50% of harmful blue violet light and let the good blue light in, they have UV400 protection (99-100% UVA & UVB protection), they have an anti reflective and anti scratch coating and they are non-prescription so it can be worn by anyone, from children to adults!
