Too much screen time? Signs of digital eye strain and how to reduce the impacts on your eyes

Working from home and spending more time on our devices in general isn't that great for our eyes and we might start noticing symptoms of digital eye strain.

Symptoms can include blurred vision, difficulty focusing, irritated eyes, eye fatigue, sensitivity to light, headaches and difficulty reading small print.

One helpful way to reduce the impact of digital eye strain is by remembering the 20:20:20 rule - make sure you look at something 20 metres away, for 20 seconds and do this every 20 minutes.

AM's Nats Levi talks to Specsavers Optometrist Ian Russel about the cause and symptoms relating to digital eye strain and what we can do to reduce the impact on our eyes. Watch the video above to learn more about it.

Specsavers recommends an eye test at least once every two years but if you have noticed any of the symptoms linked with digital eye strain, it's best to book an appointment as soon as you can.
