Digital Eye Strain Affects Children Now More than Ever


In our digital age, the accommodative system associated with our vision is being challenged like never before, especially for our kids.

Look at any pack of teens, tweens or tikes and most of them have their faces just inches from a smartphone or tablet. Watching TV has become a multiple-medium event and schools are moving towards tablet based textbooks.

The frequency kids are alternating between distances and near, convergence and divergence, is higher than ever before and on the rise.

What are we seeing in the exam room? More complaints of blurred vision, headaches and fatigue. Parents are sharing their kids are having a hard time with reading, the need to take special classes, and employing tutors due to trouble focusing in class.

Our vision accommodative system cannot handle these changes! So what can we do to help you?

Asking More Questions

What is your child’s digital media habits, sleep patterns, grades, if they are having trouble reading in school, have they been tutored, or have special classes been suggested. These are not signs of behavior or intelligence issues, these are vision issues!

More Demonstrations

When we have a child in the chair with Digital Eye Strain symptoms we have them read. Then we do a variety of what may look like simple exercises or tests.

If you think you or your child is suffering from Digital Eye Strain, Call us for an appointment today!

Our first piece of advice when we bought our Airstream was from friends and fellow campers. They said to make sure you "keep the shiny side up." Something that struck me kind of funny, but so true :)
