Richard Byrne, blogger of Free Technology for Teachers, provides information on digital eye strain. Very similar to prior posts on ergonomics and the use of mobile devices, Richard Byrne shares a report from the Vision Council that provides information on symptom of visual strain and how to manage it. Are you using computers or mobile devices for long durations? Do you experience the symptons of visual eye strain?

Read this article from the Vision Council “Screens, Phones, Tablets and More: Keeping Your Eyes Safe in a Digital Age” for their complete report.
