Screens, Screens Everywhere
Look to your left. Now, look to your right. How many screens do you have around you right now?
Digital eye fatigue, or digital eye strain, creeps up on us the longer we’re looking at our computers, cellphones, and TVs.
But there are certain things you can do to help prevent digital eye strain at home and in the office. To get a detailed assessment of your eyes and specific recommendations on reducing digital eye strain, come talk to us.
Are Your Eyes Feeling the Strain?
Sometimes it’s called computer vision syndrome, sometimes digital eye strain. Whatever you want to call it, it can be uncomfortable.
Digital eye strain presents itself in many ways. Some of these symptoms can include:
- Strained eyes
- Blurry vision
- Dry eyes
- Neck & shoulder pain
What You Can Do
Luckily, you can make changes in your work environment and daily routine to help mitigate the effects of digital eye strain.
Try some of these solutions to keep your eyes feeling comfortable:
- Change the brightness of your screen to match the lighting in your room
- Position your screen to reduce glare caused by windows or lighting
- Keep your screen clean from dust and fingerprints
- Make sure you’re using the right prescription for glasses or contact lenses
- Keep your distance from your screen
- Adjust your seating to prevent head movement and straining your neck
You can also practice the 20-20-20 rule to give your eyes a break. After 20 minutes of looking at your screen, take a look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This gives your eyes a chance to readjust.
Find Your Solution
Our eye doctors are here to help you find your solution to digital eye strain. We may ask you questions about your digital usage habits at your eye exam to determine any factors that could be aggravating other eye symptoms like dry eyes.
Ensuring your eyeglasses and contact lens prescriptions are up to date can also minimize eye strain in daily life and in front of the screen. We want to help you see the best you can see and feel comfortable doing it.

The staff at Pinnacle are great and the office was extremely comfortable! The environment was welcoming and I actually forgot that this was the first time we ever met! The process was smooth and painless! Dr. King-Smith was very thorough with my exam and made sure he addressed all my questions and concerns. They have a wide selection of different frames and colors, which, I found the perfect ones for me! I left feeling well informed and excited to come back to pick up my new glasses! I felt like I made new friends! Professional, very clean, and friendly! Couldn’t ask for anything more!
I had an amazing experience at Pinnacle Eyecare. It is clear they care about the patient and their eye health. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. King-Smith took the time to explain the different tests he was doing to help me understand my eye health and what he will continue to monitor each visit. The visit was comprehensive yet efficient, and the office is welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend this to everyone!
Wow! What an amazing office. I have been looking for an eye doctor in Columbus since I moved. Dr. King-Smith is so friendly and inviting! Eye exam was all typical, however what really made them stand apart was the staffs genuine desire to connect with me. We spent time looking for frames that complimented my face and when we got a good pick, I was able to choose a different color! So accommodating and friendly. Also there is an office dog named Max!
This place is amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. My favorite parts were we could request an appointment online and they explained every step of the way. I’ve been going to eye doctors since I was young and this is honestly the best one I’ve been to and I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone I know.
I had an INCREDIBLE experience with Pinnacle eyecare, and their staff. Professional, down to earth, and friendly. They have great equipment that will give you increased information about your inner eye health that I have not received before at other offices! Hannah at the front desk sets the appointment off right with great customer care. Kyle who helped with my frames was very friendly, and helped me make the most of my insurance benefits. They have a GREAT selection of frames as well. Dr. King-Smith was thorough with my exam, and participated at every part of my appointment from start to finish. I do not have to look any further for eye care. I am very pleased. 10/10. Would HIGHLY recommend. Also, really enjoyed seeing the office dog Max! He is SO sweet and cute!!!
Best experience at an eye doctor, ever. Doctor explained every step he was performing and made me feel comfortable. I felt like I took a mini crash course on the eyes! You can always tell when someone loves what they do, and it felt exactly like that at Pinnacle Eyecare. They took my insurance into consideration the entire time, which is very important to me. I’m very happy to have found great care and so close to me, too.
