Digital Eye Strain in Scottsdale

Book Appointment

Do Your Eyes Feel Strained?

When you close your eyelids for a few seconds, do you feel that tired, burning, aching sensation? That could be an indication that your eyes are feeling strained.

More than ever before, we are using digital devices and screens for work and pleasure. From computer use in the office to scrolling on your phone, and TV shows in the evening, we spend about 7 hours each day on these devices.

It may come as no surprise that these long hours can contribute to digital eye strain. One of the ways you can ensure you’re not adding extra strain to your eyes is by making sure your prescription is accurate.

Our eye doctors at Eye Lab in Scottsdale can help you manage your digital eye strain. Visit us today.

Rest & Relax Your Eyes with Digital Lenses

We tend not to think about the comfort of our eyes until we experience discomfort. Our team is here to help prevent that discomfort from happening, especially as a result of digital eye strain.

There are tips and tricks you can follow at home and in the office to give your eyes the rest and relaxation they deserve. But if you’re looking for something that can give your eyes the extra protection they need, you should consider Digital Lenses.

Digital Lenses are specifically designed eyeglasses that provide extra protection and comfort when using digital devices. They reduce the amount of blue light entering your eyes, and also reduce glare, distortion, and blurriness.

Essilor and Zeiss are two of the leading brands in the market for Digital Lenses. Both Essilor and Zeiss Digital Lenses come with a range of features, such as anti-reflective coating and UV protection, that can further reduce eye strain and protect your eyes from potential damage.

Digital Lenses are a great investment for anyone who spends a considerable amount of time in front of digital devices. They can help reduce eye strain and protect your eyes from potential damage.

5 Ways to Relieve Digital Eye Strain

There are many things you can do on your own to help prevent digital eye strain. Try these top 5 ways to reduce digital eye strain to find relief from your symptoms.

1. Adjust Your Workspace

We know you spend a lot of time in front of your computer. Did you know that an ergonomic workspace can make your eyes feel more comfortable? Keep your screen about an arm’s length away and about 20-degrees lower than your eyes. Keep your workspace situated to reduce glare from overhead lighting or windows.

This might sound obvious, but your eyes could be straining to see if you don’t have an accurate eyeglass or contact lens prescription. If you’re experiencing a lot of eye strain, it could be time to come see us for an eye exam.

Yes, this is different than adjusting your workspace! Remind yourself to sit up straight, keep your shoulders relaxed, and make sure your chair provides proper back support.

Are you one of those people with a bottle of moisturizer with you wherever you go? Even if you’re not, there’s room on your desk or in your bag for eye drops. Use eye drops throughout the day to prevent dry eyes. And, don’t forget to blink! We tend to blink less while we’re looking at a screen.

Just like our minds and bodies need time to rest, so do our eyes. Try to do non-screen tasks while you’re on your coffee and lunch breaks. Additionally, you can practice the 20-20-20 rule: after 20 minutes of looking at the screen, look at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
