Having an outdated, inaccurate prescription seems like a logical thing to correct when having digital eye strain issues but you would be surprised how many folks do not consider this factor when experiencing eye ache and strain symptoms. Step #1 - See your Optometrist!
An incorrect prescription can also mean that the numbers are correct but they are prescribed for the wrong working distance.
Contact lens wearers with low amounts of astigmatism are susceptible to strain because low astigmatism is not generally corrected in soft contact lenses. If this sounds familiar, the solution may be to have glasses for extended screen use times. Or even antifatigue glasses for over your contacts!
