CEI’s Dr. Brian Kuhlman talked with Local 12’s Liz Bonis Local 12 News on Digital Eye Strain.
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) – A report just released from The Vision Council has a warning about how much time you spend on your smart phone, computer or tablet. Betsy Behne comes in to see her optometrist, Doctor Brian Kuhlman, at least once a year. She had surgery at age eight to repair the retina of one of her eyes, which could have destroyed her vision. “They had to cover both eyes with patches, so I know what it’s like to be completely blind and I don’t want to lose what I have,” she said.
According to the new report many people could be at risk for losing some sight for another reason, one Betsy also knows all too well, “I have an iPhone, iPad and a laptop, and at work I work on the desk top.” The problem is too much screen time. For most people it’s at least two hours a day on one device, for many its the use of multiple devices at one time. This has already led to nearly 7 in 10 adults reporting symptoms of what’s now called digital eye strain.
