When televisions were created, and when computer monitors were created, we were constantly warned not to sit too near as it is bad for our eyes. However with the creation of mobile devices like smartphones, it’s as if we’re carrying a television and computer in our pockets all the time, meaning that day or night, our eyes are glued to it.

We guess it’s safe to assume that this has led to more eye problems being developed over the years, but it seems that it might run deeper than that. According to a report from WIRED UK, it seems that our obsession with our smartphones could actually be changing the shape of our eyes.

This is according to ophthalmologist Andrew Bastawrous who was quoted as saying, “Many more people are becoming shortsighted than they were a decade ago. The implications of this are not just that there are more people needing glasses, but that their condition is pathological.” While Bastawrous doesn’t explicitly say our mobile devices are to blame, he doesn’t see how else this could be happening.

Bastawrous said, “The initial theory for this is that people are doing more near-plane reading activity with smartphones which is encouraging the eye to become myopic to meet that environmental need. There’s also evidence that suggests this is happening too quickly for it to be purely an environmental or genetic response.”

Some friendly tips that can help protect your precious eyes:

  1. Give yourself a break!  Follow the 20/20/20 rule. Give yourself a 20 second break, every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away. You might notice something that can brighten your day.
  2. Block the bad blue light! Use a blue light filtering app on your phone/device or ask your eye care professional about high energy blue and UV light blocking lenses. These specialty lenses block the bad high energy blue and UV light, but also let the beneficial blue light in. Proven to reduce eye strain and improve sleep.

In early May, we decided to support our patient who teaches at Lakeshore C.I. Tech. in Toronto, Tim O’Hare, in sponsoring a school trip to Chicago. The students had a great experience, learned many new facts, and cherished educational moments. This trip truly represented in how seeing the colours of life is possible. Kodak Lens | Toronto Eyecare was very proud in supporting this amazing educational event. Visual learning is the best way to experience life.

“A very big thank you goes out to Kodak Lens | Toronto Eyecare for sponsoring the Lakeshore C.I. Tech. trip to Chicago this year. The trip was a great success, giving students a chance to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright house, tour the Art Institute of Chicago, travel the L-line and even take in a Chicago Cubs game. Thanks to your generous donation, students who may not have been able to afford the trip were able to experience a wealth of new learning. Thanks, once again for your support.”

Most people know that ultraviolet (UV) light can cause premature aging of the skin, sunburn and some skin cancers, but UV is also dangerous to the eyes.

Aside from skin damage that occurs in the sensitive eyelids, UV radiation has been found to be a significant factor in the development of cataracts, as well as progression of age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness. In addition, UV is an underlying cause of certain types of exposure damage to the conjunctiva in the formation of small growths called pingueculas, and larger, wedge-shaped plaques known as pterygiums. UV exposure can also cause a condition called photokeratitis, which is the medical term for an ocular sunburn. The skin covering the cornea and the conjunctiva are sensitive to damage from the same rays that cause skin sunburn elsewhere. Both UV-A and UV-B rays are implicated in these conditions.

UV light is part of the radiation spectrum and is not visible to humans. Since UV rays have more energy than visible light, they can penetrate the ocular tissues more easily and can damage the crystalline lens and the retina.

Once UV-related changes begin to appear, the best course of action is to prevent progression and further damage. Damage to the eyes happens gradually and is not reversible. It is important to protect the eyes from UV light from a very young age.

Children should wear good-quality sunglasses that block UV and wear a hat with a broad brim in front to prevent UV from getting to the eyes. Children spend more time outside and are more vulnerable to cumulative damage from UV. Like the use of seat belts, it is important to protect the eyes every time they would be exposed to the sun; the best way is to make eye protection a habit by wearing sunglasses.

Good sunglasses can be much more than just a fashion statement; they can be essential for long-term eye health. Choose sun eyewear that blocks at least 99% of UV light and select frames that wrap-around the face to get the most effective sun protection. Also, the darkness of the tint does not reflect how well the glasses block UV; the UV protection depends on the manufacturing quality and is usually indicated on the lenses.

Visit our clinics to learn more about the importance of sunglasses and protecting your eyes from harmful UV light. We have a wide selection of sunglasses that provide the protection you need and available in prescription, non-prescription, tinted, and polarized lenses.
