How to Prevent Digital Eye Strain

The most important thing you can do to prevent digital eye strain is give your eyes a chance to rest. To do this, the American Optometric Association suggests following the 20/20/20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break, and shift your gaze to an object that is at least 20 feet away from you.

You may also want to consider investing in glasses or contact lenses specifically designed to reduce digital eye strain. These lenses are made using specialized designs, tints, powers, or coatings that are engineered to block out harmful blue light, reduce glare, and maximize both your comfort and visual abilities.

For more information about digital eye strain, and things you can do to safeguard your eyes, speak to your optometrist during your next appointment.
