At Maine Optometry, we know how important it is to be able to comfortably use screens for both work and leisure, and we’re proud to help you guard against and manage your digital eye strain.
What is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital eye strain is the term for a group of vision-related problems that are the result of prolonged use of computers, smartphones, tablets, and anything else with a digital screen. These devices emit blue light, and overexposure to blue light can cause the following symptoms:
- Blurred vision
- Dry eye
- Neck and shoulder pain
