Adjust Your Child’s Workspace
Take note of your child’s device usage habits. Poor lighting or glare on the screen can cause your child to have trouble focusing on the subject matter on-screen, causing eye strain.
Additionally, holding devices too close or sitting too close to the TV can cause strain on the eyes. If they are using a computer, improper posture can cause sore muscles and discomfort.
If your child begins to complain of certain specific symptoms, they may be struggling with digital eye strain. It is important to have a conversation about the proper usage of digital devices with your child.
Digital eye strain can present as sore eyes, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and neck and shoulder pain.
If you notice your child is experiencing these symptoms, it give us a call so we can assess their eyes and the impact digital eye strain may be having on them.
