The amount of time spent using screens is increasing among the different age groups of the population. At the same time, employees complain of recurring symptoms: headaches, fatigue, headache at the end of the day, red eyes, stinging, tugging, dry eyes, etc.
The functional signs of these complaints are well known: stamina and fatigue, blurred or even double vision, letters that get mixed up, difficulty in focusing, frequent changes in distance, ...
