What is the Impact of Digital Eye Strain on Adults?

 

Modern work and lifestyle changes have forced us to spend extended hours in close-range activities, such as viewing smart phones, computer work, e-books, and hand-held gaming. The increased demands of these activities on your eyes can leave you with uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms. For some people, eye strain can also lead to reduction in productivity and ability to concentrate—and may even negatively impact your vision health.

 

About 84% of American adults report using digital devices for more than two hours per day with nearly 68% using two or more devices simultaneously, and 65% report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain. Americans report experiencing the following symptoms of digital eye strain:

 

  • 33.9% report experiencing eye strain

  • 29.0% report experiencing dry eyes

  • 29.9% report experiencing headaches

  • 29.5% report experiencing blurred vision

  • 36.3% report experiencing neck and shoulder pain

 

Additionally, close to 80% report using digital devices, including TV, in the hour before going to sleep, with almost 54% in the first hour they are awake.

 

Common symptoms of visual fatigue are headaches, tired eyes, neck or back pain, burning or stinging eyes, and difficulty focusing for extended periods of time. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your eye doctor can show you how to reduce eye strain and fatigue through advancements in technology.

Follow these healthy habits to wear your contact lens safely and help protect your eyes:

 

Don’t Sleep in Your Contact Lenses

  • Don’t sleep in your contact lenses unless prescribed by your eye care provider. Sleeping while wearing contact lenses has been shown to increase the chance of an eye infection by 6 to 8 times.

  • Replace your contact lenses as often as recommended by your eye care provider.

 

Wash Your Hands

  • Always wash your hands with soap and water before handling your lenses.

  • Dry your hands well with a clean cloth before touching your contact lenses every time.

 

Keep contact lenses away from all water

  • Water can introduce germs to the eyes through contact lenses. Remove contact lenses before swimming and avoid showering in them.

 

Properly Clean Your Lenses

  • Rub and rinse your contact lenses with contact lens disinfecting solution—never water or saliva—to clean them each time you remove them.

  • Don’t “top off” solution. Use only fresh contact lens disinfecting solution in your case—never mix fresh solution with old or used solution.

  • Use only the contact lens solution recommended by your eye care provider.

 

Take Care of Your Contact Lens Case

  • Clean your contact lens case by rubbing and rinsing it with contact lens solution—never water—and then empty and dry with a clean tissue. Store upside down with the caps off after each use.

  • Replace your contact lens case at least once every three months.

Why? Read the science behind the recommendations.

 

Talk with Your Eye Care Provider

  • Have a conversation with your eye care provider during your next appointment to discuss your contact lens wear and care habits and to help prevent eye infections.

  • Visit your eye care provider yearly or as often as he or she recommends.

  • Remove your contact lenses immediately and call your eye care provider if you have eye pain, discomfort, redness, or blurred vision.

 

Be Prepared

  • Carry a backup pair of glasses with a current prescription—just in case you have to take out your contact lenses.
