Screen Time Is Stressing Our Eyes Out

We are spending an excessive amount of our time these days using our screens for everyday life. We go from using a computer at work, to our phones on the commute home. We surf the net while waiting in line and relax with a movie on our i-pads in the evenings.

This all adds up to a lot of time staring at screens close up, which may have an impact on the progression of myopia.

30% of Canadians are Nearsighted

When you are having a hard time seeing things farther away from you, then you are dealing with a condition that is called Myopia or nearsightedness. This eye condition  affects at least 30% of Canadians and is the most common reason for needing distance glasses.

Myopia is very common and does not affect the clarity of objects that are close to you, only far away. You may have a hard time clearly seeing things on the television or reading road signs.

Eyes, Corneas and Light Rays

Myopic eyes are typically longer than average from front to back, which prevents light rays from focusing directly on the retina. The eye actually grows too long for the natural curve of the cornea, causing light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina instead of precisely on the retina. Spending lots of time with “near activities” (ie lots of screen time) in childhood, may lead to progression of myopia.

Myopia can be corrected permanently with Laser Vision Correction eye surgery. Treatments for myopia are available at Lasik Cataract Centre in Lindsay, Ontario, including custom LASIK, PRK, and Refractive Lens Exchange.
