Get Proactive with Computer Vision Syndrome

Screen time increases have led to a surge of patients complaining of symptoms related to computer vision syndrome.

Eighty percent of Americans use digital devices like computers, phones, TVs, and tablets for at least 2 hours a day, with 67% using 2 or more devices at once. Two hours is often all it takes for someone to experience screen time symptoms. In fact, 92% of one survey’s respondents reported experiencing tired eyes, headaches, and eye strain from device use.

People are looking for relief, with thousands typing “computer vision syndrome,” “digital eye strain,” and “see sick syndrome” into search engines. People have even started forums to discuss options to help alleviate these increasingly common complaints. Offering a clinically backed vitamin with nutritional benefits for the eyes and the body gives your patients a trustworthy solution without scouring the internet.

Digital devices aren't going anywhere, so it's best to know how to best handle excessive screen time.

With an abundance of options out there, it can be challenging to know what nutraceuticals to recommend to your patients who are suffering from the effects of computer vision syndrome.  Luckily, EyePromise® Screen Shield™ Pro provides natural defense and relief from extended screen time.

Who Should Take Screen Shield Pro?

EyePromise designed Screen Shield Pro for adults 18 and up who spend 8+ hours a day looking at screens. Computer programmers, web developers, data analysts, game developers, and software engineers all have high daily screen time and are at risk of having screen time-related symptoms. Office jobs also consist of many hours spent in front of screens, so anyone in careers like accounting, marketing, sales, etc. could benefit from Screen Shield Pro.

Although the standard workday is 8 hours long, it’s also important to consider screen time in patients’ free time. Many people unwind by lounging in front of the TV, scrolling through social media, or playing video games. Their eyes don’t get to clock out, so they’re still working hard during these “off” hours. Make sure to include all screen use when you are considering which patients would benefit from Screen Shield Pro.

Though many of us would like to think we temper our screen time, symptoms can arise after only 2 hours of use. Understanding this idea and the daily device use of each patient helps determine who would benefit most from nutritional protection.
