Digital Eye Strain Treatment in Charleston, SC

Book Appointment

What Is Digital Eye Strain?

Technology is a constant part of our everyday lives. But staring at screens, like phones, tablets, e-readers, or computers, can be hard on our eyes. 

The blue light from digital screens can cause discomfort and disrupt sleep patterns. Additionally, prolonged screen time can lead to digital eye strain or computer vision syndrome (CVS). 

If you notice increased blinking, headaches, or trouble sleeping, especially after screen time, you might be experiencing eye strain.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

Most symptoms of digital eye strain are easily treated but can worsen if ignored. If you’re concerned about any of the following symptoms, book an appointment with us.

  • Blurred or double vision
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Watery or dry eyes
  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Irritated or red eyes
  • Sore or tired eyes

Managing Digital Eye Strain

Many of the symptoms of digital eye strain can seem minor. If you’re unsure if you have digital eye strain, try a few of these simple adjustments:

  • Take screen time breaks
  • Increase monitor distance
  • Try the 20-20-20 rule
  • Apply eye drops recommended by your eye doctor

If symptoms continue or worsen, see your eye doctor for a thorough assessment. Your optometrists can suggest visual exercises and other options to relieve symptoms.
