In this day and age, it’s hard to resist binge-watching your favorite TV shows, keeping up with celebrities on Instagram, talking politics on Twitter, and working long hours to finish your PowerPoint presentation by the deadline. But be warned: all this digital immersion can affect your eyes through digital eye strain.
Digital eye strain can appear after spending as little as two hours a day in front of a screen. But, if you’re like most people, you likely spend far more than a couple of hours a day bathed in technology’s luminous glow. Furthermore, that glow largely comprises blue light, a high-energy range of light that is linked to digital eye strain.
- Tired, itching or burning eyes
- Dry or watery eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurry or double vision
If you work in front of a computer or are a regular digital device user, you’ve likely experienced one or more of these symptoms. In fact, more than half of all Americans suffer from digital eye strain.
How to avoid digital eye strain.
Significantly cutting down your screen time is not a feasible option for most. (Although, if you have children, you might consider limiting their screen time to less than a few hours a day).
A more reasonable option is to wear glasses with lenses that help defend against digital eye strain.
Unity Relieve is a lens that offers a slight prescription boost at the bottom of your lenses where you view the screens of your digital devices. The innovative lenses also come coated with TechShield Blue, an anti-reflective coating that reduces exposure to blue light. This combination enables better vision when glancing down at your devices as well as improved visual comfort throughout the day.
Your eye doctor can customize Unity Relieve lenses to accommodate your unique visual needs, current eye strain symptoms and digital lifestyle. That means you’ll get the exact visual relief and performance you need. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should binge on more of your favorite shows, but at least your eyes will be more comfortable if you do!
A personalized experience, better visual performance and relief from digital eye strain. If you’re like the millions of people who are digitally devout, that could be just what the eye doctor ordered. During your next eye exam, ask your eye doctor if Unity Relieve is right for you.
