Sorry to say, reading this story on your computer, tablet or mobile phone screen can cause eye strain and other vision related debilitating conditions.

How you see the world – more specifically, the Digital World – can have an adverse affect on your vision and health.

Have you suffered from dry eye, headaches, blurry vision, eye fatigue, insomnia?

If so, it is time to focus on the reality and negative result of modern day advancements – Computer Vision Syndrome.

Prolonged exposure to close distance viewing of computer screens and other devices can harm your eyes.

The electronic devices we use today emit artificial HEV red, green and blue (RGB) light. The worse of these is the strong HEV blue light. This blue light can penetrate the eye all the way back to the retina which can cause retina damage and lead to cataracts and sleep disorders.

The US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health confirms that 90% of people that spend 3 or more hours a day on a computer  report  symptoms of computer vision syndrome or eye strain.
