What Is Digital Eye Strain?
Despite its name, digital eye strain is not actually caused by the digital devices themselves. It’s actually caused by intensely focusing on a task, such as reading or driving. However, viewing a computer or digital screen can make the eyes work harder, leaving many susceptible to uncomfortable side effects.
An uncorrected vision problem, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or improper posture, can also exacerbate eye strain.
