Digital Eye Strain in Brantford

Book Appointment

A Very Modern Condition

Digital eye strain is a very modern issue. We use a variety of screens daily, from smartphones and computers to gaming consoles and televisions, it is hard to walk away from the convenience of digital devices. 

But, too much screen time can lead to digital eye strain. If you experience any discomfort after using your device, be sure to book an appointment with us. It’s important to rule out any other serious conditions.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

When you’re hard at work on your computer, your eyes are working hard too! While using digital devices, your eyes have to work harder than usual to maintain focus. 

The following symptoms are indicative of digital eye strain:

  • Headache
  • Blurry vision
  • Dry eyes
  • Neck or shoulder pain

The symptoms usually resolve after you’ve put your device down, but they’ll begin again once you return to screen use. Disconnecting is difficult these days, so be sure to visit us for some mitigation strategies.
