Digital Eyestrain - Are You at Risk?

If you’re reading this, the answer is probably yes. Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults experience some form of digital eyestrain, according to a 2012 eMarketer study, yet only 23 percent are aware that there is eyewear that can help reduce it (Vision Council 2012 Digital Eye Fatigue Report).

To call attention to the issue, Carl Zeiss vision has released a consumer-oriented infographic that points out common symptoms and causes of digital eyestrain and how special digital-use eyewear designed for computer and digital device use—like Zeiss’ own Officelens—can address these symptoms. 

The infographic—“Digital Eyestrain—Are you at Risk?” —has been picked up by major news publications like the Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times and is also available for download at
