Computer Vision Syndrome

Our bodies were never supposed to spend all day in front of screens.

Computer Vision Syndrome

, also known as Digital Eye Strain, is categorized by the negative side effects of overusing computers. Symptoms include eye strain, blurred vision, headaches, dry eyes, and neck and back strain.

According to The Vision Council, this is a rapidly growing problem in the United States and across the globe, which makes sense given how often we now stare at our screens. The average American now is front of a computer for 7.5 hours a day (the average world citizen is close behind at 7 hours per day). 200 million people—over 50% of the U.S. population—already report symptoms of

Computer Vision Syndrome

. And this number is increasing 7% per generation.

That’s why Felix Gray started. Our lenses are designed to combat

Computer Vision syndrome

by filtering blue light and eliminating glare. Blue light is high energy light emitted by screens and glare is unnecessary feedback that enters into the eye.

Felix Gray customers report that this leads to a far more comfortable experience in front of a screen, particularly with relation to items like less eye strain and fewer headaches. Another great way to combat

Computer Vision Syndrome

is by practicing the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away from your computer screen, and stare at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Happier eyes, yay!
