“On average, nine out of ten adults spend daily more than two hours using a digital device, with more than six out of ten adults spending five or more hours on digital devices”.

What is Digital Eye Strain?

Digital Eye Strain (D.E.S.) syndrome is the physical discomfort felt after two or more hours of work in front of digital monitors and it is associated with their artificial blue light emissions combined with the constant focus at close to mid-range distances. Digital devices are emitting a type of Blue Light for which we are not biologically evolved to confront and which in time harms the quality of tears layers and contributes to early occurrence of certain eye damages and syndromes (e.g. early cataracts and macular degeneration). Spending significant amounts of time in front of a monitor causes blink rates to reduce, resulting to dry, itchy or burning eyes. Bright lighting and too much glare can also strain your eyes, resulting to irregularities in contrast perception, which makes working on your monitor more demanding and tiring.  Additionally over-exposure to Blue Light, especially at night time, can cause insomnia and sleep circle disruption.


Digital Eyestrain Symptoms

  • Headaches caused by repeated eye strains
  • Blurred double vision, or dizziness.
  • Dry eyes due to reduced blinking rate.
  • Eyelid aches during blinking due to blue light effect on tear layer quality.
  • Increased sensitivity to light.
  • Blurred vision due to screen glare.
  • General fatigue from staring at screens and straining to see
  • Sleep disruption
  • Circadian rhythm disturbance symptoms.
