The Basics - Digital Eye Strain - mEYEspa at Studio Eye Care
When we use a computer, tablet or smart phone for an extended period, many of us experience digital eye strain. There are several reasons why this occurs including:
- posture & ergonomics
- long periods of sustained focus
- back-lit screens
- improper prescription glasses or contact lenses
- eye muscle / alignment issues
