Here’s a surprise: staring at screens throughout the day is pretty much unavoidable. But all that screen time can be hard on your eyes and may cause digital eye strain — even if you don’t currently wear glasses. Because screens are small, bright and we spend a lot of time staring at them, they make our eyes work hard.
- Most people spend at least 12 hours a day consuming some form of media.
- It only takes as little as two hours in front of a screen to cause digital eye strain.
- Nearly 60% of people use their smartphones before bed and right when they wake up.
