We’re Here to Help Eliminate Your Digital Eye Strain Symptoms
After a long day at work you might feel a headache coming on, or a tiredness in your eyes you can’t rub away. These little irritations could all be signs of digital eye strain.
On average, we spend 7 hours a day staring at a digital screen. To avoid discomfort and vision problems caused by digital eye strain, visit the team at Clarity Vision Group. We provide a personalized eye care experience for our patients to ensure your unique needs are well taken care of.

What Is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital eye strain is caused by prolonged use of the focusing muscles our eyes use to make everything we concentrate on nice and sharp. When using digital screens, the amount of effort required is much higher than when looking at a person or reading a book.
Common symptoms of digital eye strain can include:
- Tired eyes
- General fatigue
- Symptoms similar to dry eye
- Trouble with focusing
- Stiff muscles around the neck and back
Smarter Screen Use for Improved Eye Health
Even if you take a few days off from work to recover (and time away from screens will certainly help) this may only be a temporary reprieve. Digital eye strain is caused by extensive use of your focusing muscles, so symptoms may arise again once you go back to work.
Instead, there are some best practices you can observe at work or at home to help minimize the effort required by your eyes.
These are specialty lenses designed to absorb glare, focus at optimal distance and perhaps absorb certain wavelengths of blue light.
Digital eye strain can change your prescription needs. If your prescription has changed, we can help get your lenses updated through our on-site optical lab.
Workplace Set Up
When setting up your workstation, keep in mind a computer monitor should sit around 20–28 inches from your eyes. Proper lighting is also beneficial to avoid unnecessary glare.
Rest Your Eyes
To help prevent the symptoms of digital eye strain you can practice the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. It’s also important to remember to blink often. Blinking keeps your eyes hydrated and moist, so you can minimize your chances of developing dry eyes.
Take Care of Your Hard-Working Eyes
Arranging an annual eye exam can ensure your prescription is up-to-date and your overall ocular health is well looked-after. Eye strain can be a sign of underlying illness, so it’s best to arrange an appointment if you notice consistent symptoms.
If it’s troubling you, don’t bother waiting for your annual exam. We want to get you back on the mend nice and quickly. Visit us today!
Adult & Senior Eye Exams
Our comprehensive adult and senior eye exams give us the opportunity to assess your eye health, test your vision, and protect your eyes from future health problems.
Contact Lens Exams & Evaluations
Before you order your next pair of contacts, it’s important to get a proper contact lens exam and evaluation. Contact lenses aren’t suitable for everyone and an exam can help determine what vision correction solution is right for your eyes.
Children’s Eye Exams
Many eye diseases and conditions start to progress during childhood. Protect your child’s vision and eye health by making sure they see us regularly for an eye exam.
Does your child have myopia or nearsightedness? With a variety of myopia management techniques and treatments, we can help your child’s vision improve.
