What is digital visual fatigue?

It is a set of symptoms that appear when subjecting our eyes to an excessive visual effort, as is the use of digital screens for many hours a day. This can lead to glare, blur, problems of accommodation, misalignment, dryness, fatigue and discomfort.

Digital visual fatigue in a simple way
Although digital visual fatigue is a reality that suffers from a large part of the population, most do not know what it is. Let's explain the problem in a very simple way and invite you to go and find the best solution for your optics.

Did you know that eye itching may be due to so-called visual fatigue? More and more people spend more time in front of a screen or digital device as it can be a computer, tablet or mobile phone. These devices are part of our life changing our habits and affecting our eyes too.

If you are a computer scientist and you spend too many hours in front of the computer, if you work as an administrative in an office, if your children spend more and more hours in front of the mobile and every time they do more duties with the computer, you will feel that at the end of the day they bite you or burn the eyes.

In all these cases, what happens is that when fixing the view on a screen with a very short distance, we reduce the frequency of the flicker and the tear is not renewed in a suitable way.

The human eye usually blinks at least once every 5 seconds, this involuntary movement renews the tear and also maintains the quantity and quality of the appropriate tear film. That is why when we blink less, symptoms of itching and stinging appear.


Tips:
There are various behavioral guidelines that will help you combat digital visual fatigue:
- Frequent breaks in reading.
- Practice distant vision from time to time.
- Place the devices at a suitable distance.
- Humidify the workplace
- Use of drops with double humectant
 

Treatment:

There are moisturizing drops with hyaluronic acid that restore tear balance and provide immediate comfort and relief.

* These drops combine the viscosity and bioadhesive action of hydroxyethylcellulose with the humectant and viscoelastic properties of hyaluronic acid.

Ask us in any of our optics about which is the product that best suits you. Remember that eye health is in the optics.

When choosing a prescription lens for your glasses you have to take into account several important factors: an optimal and relaxed vision, adapted to your needs.

Obviously prescription lenses should provide an optimal vision for all people, but our opticians can help you to choose the best for your needs.

Sometimes our ability to see is altered by the unstoppable rhythm of our lives and in certain situations we are not aware of the use of vision, which causes overexertion and as a result, loss or discomfort in vision.

However, we have a wide variety of options in prescription lenses that cover all situations of unstoppable rhythm adapted to each need.

At present, we can distinguish lenses according to:

Scope of use

A very important criterion when buying new prescription lenses is the possibility of using them in front of a multitude of scenarios, why do I need the lenses or what do I need them for?

The more information the optometrist has, the simpler the selection process will be.

Leading technology

Another maxim when buying a lens: the more individualized the lenses, the better results will be obtained in terms of quality of vision, comfort and tolerance, including in the case of progressive.

In short, the concept of prescription lenses is tailor made.

Optical tips for the return to school 2017?

 

Reduce exposure time and situate 35-40cm of tablets, mobile and / or video game screens.

Constant access to technology affects our vision. Exposure for many hours a day combined with closer distances can cause discomfort such as dry and irritated eyes, blurred vision and discomfort especially after several devices are used after a short time.

 

"Each child spends more than 900 hours a year at school and 1,200 hours in front of a screen, some even use a digital device before they can read, speak or walk."

 

Study and rest in different places

Having a proper study room to a well-designed ergonomic space provides visual comfort. Reduce artificial light and take advantage of natural light with the aim of avoiding shadows or the lack of clarity.

The visual fatigue is reduced considerably with the adaptation of two points of light, one in the ceiling and another flexo type.

To rest in the studio, we recommend to practice the rule 20x20, is a visual exercise that consists of pausing, looking up and fixing it to some distant object for 20 seconds.

 

Detect visual problems in study attitudes.

Look for signs that indicate a change or visual impairment. The most common symptoms of poor visual health are constant flickering, refusal to read, winking to see more, even headache during reading or study.

 

Annual review as a preventive measure

The time in the classroom, at work even in sports is directly related to the skill of the vision so your visual success will be guaranteed.

If you have noticed any of the symptoms discussed in the article, now is the time to do a review.

Do not hesitate to visit our opticians-optometrists to study the best solution to the problem.

 

These tips are useful for solving visual problems and remember that you can correct them by wearing glasses or contact lenses.
