Digital Eye Strain and Digital Natives

NEW YORK—While The Vision Council’s newly released Digital Eye Strain Report focused on multiple age groups, their research shed some light on those constantly connected Millennials.
According to the report, “adults under 30 experience the highest rate of digital eye strain symptoms (73 percent) compared with other age groups.” With the use of computers, smartphones and tablets in the everyday life of a Millennial, escaping digital eye strain all together seems nearly impossible.
Additionally, the report showed that “respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 and those who use four or more digital devices simultaneously were more likely to report eye strain as a symptom. Despite having the symptoms and discomforts of digital eye strain, however, consumers are not aware of the computer eyewear solution.”
