save your visionYour vision is important. Anyone with vision problems, can attest.

National Save Your Vision Month designates the month of March to promote eye health. This year, the American Optometric Association is promoting awareness around digital eyestrain and the importance of receiving regular, comprehensive eye exams from a doctor of optometry.

The AOA’s campaign will focus specifically on blue light’s impact on overall health. According to 2016 AOA Eye-Q survey data, the average American spends seven hours per day using digital devices. Overexposure to blue light due to smartphones, tablets and other technology use for extended periods of time can cause vision damage, sleep problems and more. By analyzing data, research and trends, this campaign will provide tips on preventing digital eye strain while at home or work.

Save your vision. Get your eye exam. And talk to your doctor about health related items that affect your vision.
