Nicola Anstice, Andrew V. Collins

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


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. 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 three-to-five year-olds regularly use devices and may spend up to 2.5 hours per day viewing electronic screens.2
