Are digital screens affecting your vision?

Turns out, they could be. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a.k.a. digital eye strain, refers to a group of vision-related issues that can pop up from using digital devices for a long period of time.

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision

  • Eyestrain
  • Neck and shoulder pain

How to go easier on your eyes

In addition to having to focus and refocus on screens, there's a 60% decrease in the amount of blinking when using digital devices, which can dry out your eyes, contributing to the possibility of digital eye strain.

Fortunately, there are ways to help.

  • Look 20 feet away for 20 seconds, every 20 minutes
  • Keep your computer screen 20-28 inches away from your face and slightly below eye level
  • Try to remember to blink

#Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye.
WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care practitioner for more information.

Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye doctor. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, remove the lens and contact your eye doctor immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional, call 1-800-843-2020, or download the Patient Instruction Guides.
