What is Digital Eye Strain
All backlit, digital devices emit blue light and screen glare - the two main culprits of digital eye strain - and this optical issue has become an increasing problem in our screen saturated society.
This is not us dissing digital! We are all about it and are as glued to our devices as anyone, but with 74% of Americans required to use a computer at work, smartphone users spending 3-5 hours on their phones a day, and even our books and magazines going digital, our exposure to digital light has soared, and our eyes and our sleep are suffering as a result!
Red, dry, itchy, and achingly tired eyes, as well as blurred vision, a hard time focusing, headaches, and more severely migraines, are all classic symptoms of Digital Eye Strain. In fact, over 60% of Americans are already experiencing these symptoms - often without understanding why.
Can anything be done?
Blue light disruption
Because the blue light tricks our brain into believing it’s still daytime, falling asleep can be difficult, and we don’t sleep as deeply.
