Nicola Anstice, Andrew Collins

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


Digital eye strain (DES), a condition
characterised by ocular and visual
discomfort associated with computer
and other digital device use, is a
growing problem in modern society.1
While most research has focused on
DES in adults, understanding the
effects of digital devices on vision
in paediatric patients is essential as
approximately 70 per cent of threeto-five year-olds regularly use devices
and may spend up to 2.5 hours per day
viewing electronic screens.2
