Now that students are in front of their screens for hours per day due to distance learning, many kids are experiencing digital eye fatigue, which is a strain of the eye muscles that can be caused by staring at screens for too long.
EYE-Q’s Dr. Michael Mendoza was recently interviewed on ABC30 to discuss these new challenges and how to overcome them. Make sure your kids are following the 20-20-20 rule, where they take a break every 20 minutes and look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. They can also wear blue-light-blocking glasses. As always, make sure you bring your children in for annual check-ups at EYE-Q to ensure whole eye health!
