Digital eye strain: The whats, whys and hows

Are your eyes blurry from staring at the computer or smartphone too long? Headaches? I’m no expert but that sounds like eye fatigue to me. What I’m an expert in is spending many hours a day staring at my 32-inch monitor or my handful of smart devices. So, what exactly is eye strain? Can we manage it, beat it? To find out, I spoke to three domain experts on the matter over Zoom recently: Colin Madigan, former director of education and professional services at Essilor; Denis Chng, country manager for Malaysia and Singapore at Essilor; and Woon Pak Seong, an eye care professional (ECP) from the Association of Malaysian Optometrists (AMO).
