It is a fact that in this day and age of internet, it’s a
must for people to keep their eyes glued to the world using their digital

digitally connected has become a lifestyle. However, being online 24/7 can
strain and, even, damage your eyes. With the constant exposure to blue light
emitted from digital devices, your eyes need protection.
the abundance of digital devices, people are now engaging in a digital behavior
called “multi-screening”. It is a behavior where an individual uses multiple
digital screens simultaneously, on average four (4) different devices are used—either
for work, education, socializing or leisure.
typical multi-screen user spends 7 hours and 24 minutes of screen media per
day. Of that time, 34% is spent on smartphones; 33% on TV; 23% on laptops; and
10% on tablets. This longer time in front of bright digital screens and
versatility between devices are challenges for the human eye, and many people
are describing specific symptoms linked to their new behavior.
