Digital eye strain is the physical discomfort felt after two or more hours in front of a digital screen and is associated with the close to mid-range distance of computers, tablets, e-readers and smartphones.
A survey done on more than 10,000 adults found that 65 percent of Americans experience digital eye strain symptoms, such as dry, irritated eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue, neck and back pain and headaches.
The optical industry has responded to the shift in digital habits and has developed lens technology to alleviate vision problems and protect the eyes from blue light (which has been linked to increased risk of developing age related macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in adults over 50).
Introducing the Eyezen + lenses.
Eyezen+ lenses are a branded solution to modern problems that ordinary single vision lenses cannot solve. Eyezen+ lenses from Essilor™ are an everyday, enhanced single vision solution for patients suffering from symptoms of digital eye strain. Eyezen+ lenses also come with the Smart Blue Filter™ feature automatically built in. These lenses defend against eye strain associated with device use and reduces the exposure to harmful blue light.
