Barry Auchettl and Nathan Oxenfeld present the new Computer Eyes Program
What is Computer Eyes?
More than 80% of all school tasks are based on vision.
Computer Eyes is an online children's vision training program that offers a unique insight into the maintenance of eye health while living in a world full of screens.
Increased dependence on computer-based work has led to eye strain (asthenopia) and other conditions related to eye stress. Eye strain directly impacts concentration levels and the ability to learn for all staff and students.
Computer Eyes is an education-based model that is specifically designed for school-age children, but can technically help anyone learn simple ways to protect their eyes, regardless of age.
What are the Current Issues Regarding Vision?
> Students and teachers are having to use digital devices more frequently and viewing device screens for more than 2 hours a day, which is the threshold amount of time where potential damage begins to occur. <
> Using digital devices for longer periods of time can lead to eye strain, headaches and other vision-related problems. <
> Sore eyes and physical discomfort contribute to declining concentration levels and shorter attention spans in students.<
> More and more teachers and students are reliant on glasses or other correction to see. <
> Glasses and Contacts do not necessarily guarantee the development of good vision habits or optimal eye health. <
What are the Benefits of Computer Eyes?
+ By employing simple and effective vision training practices, we can decrease computer eye strain.
