EYECARE: Coronavirus BRIEFING: The Latest COVID-19 Data As Screen Time Rises, Eye Strain Becomes #1 Pain Point for Device Users By Staff Monday, March 15, 2021 3:49 PM In a recent LG Display/Nielsen survey of more than 5,000 people in the U.S., U.K. and China, respondents were asked about their top pain points when watching TV or using a laptop or monitor for a long time. Consumers have no shortage of complaints when using digital devices, from short battery life to lack of connectivity. However, screen time is up 30 percent over last year, according to Eyesafe, a company that brings together healthcare providers and consumer electronics manufacturers. Therefore, it is not surprising that eye strain has usurped the more functional pain points to become #1.To address eye health, consumer electronics manufacturers are evolving their design of PCs, monitors, and televisions. For example, in January, LG Display introduced the world’s first Eyesafe Certified television display—a 65” OLED. The display meets Eyesafe requirements for low emission of blue light, while maintaining natural color. Consumers can enjoy binge-watching their favorite shows with less worry about the potential health impacts of blue light, such as dry, irritated eyes, blurred vision, trouble sleeping and disruption in circadian rhythm.Eyesafe Certified laptops, monitors and TV displays help reduce high-energy blue light without compromising color.
