|Are you prone to dry, watery or itchy eyes at this time of year?|
Hay fever is an allergic response often triggered by pollens and grass. This makes springtime a challenging time for the thousands of Australians who not only experience eye discomfort, but symptoms ranging from fatigue to sneezing and even headaches.1
It’s well known that extended screen time can affect a child’s behaviour and cognitive development 2, but have you thought about the impact it could have on their vision? Symptoms of digital eye strain – caused by concentrating eyes on a screen for extended periods – can include blurred vision, headaches and difficulty concentrating.
A comprehensive eye exam can help us to understand your child’s vision and recommend a solution. This won’t necessarily mean a new pair of glasses – our team will offer advice to help your child change their digital behaviour before any eye conditions develop. If you believe your child is at risk of digital eye strain, please contact us to book an appointment.
