Young Eyes x Screen Time
Growing up with
Times have change, our kids generation now grow up with technology – where learning and playing takes place on screens. And with the COVID-19 pandemic, there is also an inevitable increase in screen time for their e-learning lessons.

The need for more TLC
Similar to adults, kids can also experience the same symptoms from too much digital usage, such as eye discomfort, dry eyes and even digital eye strain. In fact, kids are more susceptible to the effects of blue light while their eyes are still developing.
Blue light isn’t all that bad; it helps to increase overall alertness and enhance cognitive function. However, excessive blue light exposure might be unhealthy – affecting sleep patterns, general mood and eye health.
Also, they are too young to be fully capable of expressing and managing their eye issues. Even when their eyes are strained or tired, it may not occur to them to take screen breaks or to lookafter their eyes without proper guidance.
