What is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital Eye Strain, also referred to as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), is the physical discomfort associated with spending long periods of time staring at a digital screen.
At the end of a long day at work, when your eyes are burning and your head is pounding, that's one effect of digital eye strain. When you can't sleep at night after bingeing on Netflix, that's another. There's plenty more ways that the condition can manifest itself, and over 90% of digital employees are experiencing at least one regularly.
It has become more recognised as a medical condition as usage of devices emitting artificial light have become increasingly popular and prolonged over the past decade.
