Giving Your Eyes Some Time Off
We know that life can get busy, and you put your eyes through a lot on any given day. Sometimes there’s no time to slow down and take a break from work, and your eyes can pay the price. Digital eye strain can take hold when you don’t give your eyes that much-needed time off.
If exhausted, dry eyes and aching shoulders are plaguing your work day, we may be able to help you find relief. Uncorrected vision issues, uncomfortable contact lenses, and a poorly designed workspace can all make your symptoms worse. Contact us to schedule your appointment.Book Appointment
A Closer Look at Digital Eye Strain
Digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome, can affect your eyes before you even realize it from spending long hours in front of your phone, computer, tablet, or other digital screens.
The effects of digital eye strain can be magnified by preexisting vision issues such as myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism, or presbyopia.
Common signs and symptoms to look out for with digital eye strain can include:
- Blurred vision
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Dry eyes
Consistent eye exams can help our team diagnose and manage your digital eye strain symptoms to help preserve your comfort and your vision.
Our Digital Eye Strain Solutions
The first step to finding relief from digital eye strain is visiting our eye care professionals to find the right solution for your unique visual needs. The severity of your symptoms can depend on factors such as your screen time habits, your posture, lighting, glare, and the angle of your monitor.
Our team is all about helping you find a solution.
Computer & Blue Light Glasses
Computer and blue light glasses can help relieve some of the strain on your eyes during long hours in front of your computer.
Computer glasses are designed for viewing computers, tablets, and smartphones. These glasses can help relieve focusing stress and are intended for those long hours spent in front of your computer.
Glasses that can relieve the strain and encourage proper head posture while also reducing glare are a good treatment strategy that our team has found to be helpful. Glare also contributes to eye strain and is important to consider when finding the right lenses.
Acuvue Oasys Max 1-Day
The Acuvue Oasys Max 1-Day contact lenses feature a high-level blue-violet light filter and can help you keep up with the digital demands of your day.
Traditional contact lenses can get build-up that leads to irritation. Acuvue Oasys Max 1-Day lenses are disposable, so they feel fresh and comfortable throughout the day.
These lenses are intentionally designed with your digitally intense lifestyle in mind to help deliver all-day comfort. Ask our team if Acuvue Oasys Max 1-Day lenses are a good option for you!
Customizing Your Lenses
At Eyes on J Optometry, we also help customize your lens prescription based specifically on the computer distance of your setup. Our team will walk you through your options during your comprehensive eye exam and find the solution that aligns with your workstation.
Sitting at a comfortable distance away from your screen can reduce the amount of focusing your eyes have to do, allowing the glasses to work their magic and provide clear, comfortable vision.
