Eye strain, a sign of our times

The 2013 edition of the VisionWatch Survey, carried out for The Vision Council, confirms the role that electronic devices
play in eye strain. Television has the highest daily usage – 81.1% of respondents –, followed by smart phones (61.7%), laptops
(60.9%), desktops (58.1%) and tablets (37%). Along with neck and shoulder pain, eye strain is the most common symptom
reported by users. One in twenty described the discomfort as painful or excruciating.
