Digital Eye Strain

Digital Eye Strain Assessment

In today’s digital age, many of us spend hours each day staring at screens, whether it’s a computer, tablet, or smartphone. This constant exposure can lead to digital eye strain, a condition that can cause headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and other uncomfortable symptoms. 

At Concord Eye Care, we offer a dedicated digital eye strain assessment service to help diagnose and manage this condition.

Our Approach to Digital Eye Strain Assessment

Our experienced optometrists use the latest diagnostic tools and techniques to evaluate the symptoms of digital eye strain. We’ll start by discussing your screen usage habits, including the type of devices you use, how often you use them, and for how long. We’ll then perform a comprehensive eye exam to assess your vision and screen-related symptoms.

Based on the results of your assessment, we may recommend a variety of treatments and lifestyle changes to help manage your symptoms, including:

  • Specialised eyewear: We offer a range of eyeglasses and contact lenses designed to reduce digital eye strain and protect your eyes from blue light exposure.
  • Adjustments to screen settings: We’ll provide guidance on how to adjust the brightness, contrast, and colour temperature of your screens to reduce eye strain.
  • Eye exercises: Our optometrists can teach you specific exercises to help alleviate digital eye strain symptoms and improve your overall eye health.
  • Lifestyle changes: We may recommend changes to your work environment, such as adjusting lighting, taking regular breaks, and using proper posture, to reduce screen-related symptoms.
