Screen Time and Blurry Vision

Screen Time and Eye Health: Knowing When to Seek Professional Care 

Balancing Digital Engagement for Optimal Eye Health 

In an era dominated by screens, managing screen time is crucial for maintaining eye health. At Peachtree Ophthalmology, your community eye clinic located in Norcross, we guide you on recognizing when it’s time to seek professional care for potential digital eye strain. Here’s when you should consult an eye doctor: 

Persistent Eye Discomfort: If you experience persistent eye discomfort, dryness, or irritation after prolonged screen use, it’s essential to consult with an ophthalmologist for personalized solutions. 

Blurred Vision: Blurry vision during or after screen time may indicate a need for prescription glasses, specialized computer glasses, or adjustments to your current eyewear. 

Headaches and Eye Fatigue: Frequent headaches and eye fatigue, especially associated with digital activities, are signs of potential digital eye strain that an ophthalmologist can address. 

Difficulty Focusing: If you find it challenging to focus on screens or objects at various distances, it could be indicative of underlying vision issues requiring professional attention. 

Light Sensitivity: Increased sensitivity to light, also known as photophobia, may be exacerbated by prolonged screen exposure and should be discussed with Dr. Washington. 

Prioritize your eye health in the digital age by being aware of these signs and seeking timely care. Schedule an appointment at Peachtree Ophthalmology for personalized strategies to balance screen time and maintain optimal vision.
