How Digital Media is Impacting Eye Health

The Vision Council Examines the Impact of Digital Media on Vision Health 

The Vision Council released a report that finds nearly 70% of adults in United States experience digital eye strain.  The digital devices includ computers, tablets and smartphones.  However, about half of the adults don't know how to or have never tried to reduce their eye discomfort. As we experiences a surge in high technology-related digital devices, there will be more people with dry eye syndrome than ever before.

Currently, there are ways to reduce eye strain including computer glasses, computer screens to reduce glare, timers to remind the users to blink in order to minimize eye strain.

Digital eye strain is defined as the physical discomfort experienced after two or more hours in front of a digital screen. Symptoms typically include dry, red or irritated eyes; blurred vision; fatigued eyes; back, neck or shoulder pain; and headaches. While eye strain may not be permanent, digital eye strain can be painful and irritating and often affects work productivity. a significant number of people will develop chronic dry eyes.  

Another impact on eye health is the high-energy visible (HEV) or blue light emitted from the digital devices may have long-term effects on vision health. Research studies indicate that overexposure to HEV light can damage the retina and increase the possibility for developing age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. However, The Vision Council finds that six in 10 adults are unaware of the harmful consequences of HEV light.

New Research Finds Eye Holds Secrets to Stroke & High Blood Pressure

Retina Photography can predict risks for  high blood pressure and stroke- according to new research published in American Heart Association journal Hypertension.
High blood pressure is the world’s single most important risk factor for stroke, however, it is very difficult to predict which people with high blood pressure are most likely to develop a stroke.  This new research study indicates photographing the retina (retinal imaging) may help access which ones are more likely to have a stroke.
It has been said " Eye is the window to your soul".  The blood vessels behind the eye is an easy way to evaluate the status of blood vessels in the brain” and retinal imaging is a non-invasive and inexpensive way to examine the blood vessels of the retina.
Researchers tracked stroke occurrence for 13 years in people with high blood pressure who had not had not had a stroke.Retina photographs were taken, and damage to retina blood vessels(hypertension retinopathy)  were scored. During the follow-up, 146 participants experienced a stroke caused by a blood clot and 15 by bleeding in the brain out of 2907 patients over the 13 years. 
Results indicates 35 % higher in people with mild hypertensive retinopathy and 137 % higher in people with moderate or severe hypertensive retinopathy. In people  on medication and achieving decent blood pressure control, the risk of a blood clot was 96 % higher in those with mild hypertensive retinopathy and 198 % higher in those with moderate or severe hypertensive retinopathy. Data was adjusted for blood cholesterol, sex, race, blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index etc.
