Can Digital Learning Affect Children’s Eyes?

Jul 16, 2020

In today’s scenario children need to pay more attention to their eyesight, as most of their learning is done online. It is estimated that an average student spends about two hours on digital screens accessed via mobile, laptop or television, after their school hours. But now that most of the learning happens through online media, they end up spending about eight hours or above in front of these screens.


Studies show that this can lead to the following problems in children over time: -

1) Lack of attention - 33.8% of children find it difficult to focus on one thing at a time.

2) Fatigue and dryness of the eyes – The number of children experiencing this problem increases from 27.3% to 36.2% in a short span of three months.

3) Headaches - 18.4% of children have persistent headaches.

The truth is that all of this has to do with the child’s eyesight. To avoid this, parents should pay attention to the following:

1) Follow the 20:20:20 rule (Encourage your child to look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes)

2) Teach your child to blink frequently while studying online. If their eyes do not blink at least 15 to 20 times within a minute, there will be a lack of tears and the eyes will turn red.

3) Use very safe eye lubricants or artificial tears at least twice a day if both of the above do not work in practice.

4) It is mandatory to see an ophthalmologist every three months for preliminary tests.


When it comes to choosing an eye lubricant, parent’s are often hesitant as they consider it a form of medication. But the truth is, much like your skin care and hair care products in the market, there are a number of chemical-free eye care solutions you can choose from. Sreedhareeyam Sunetra Junior tops that list, as it is specially curated for children, with handpicked herbal ingredients such as padmakam, daruharidra kathakabeeja and pure honey. This equates the pH value of tear drops, giving their eyes desired lubrication and nourishing rejuvenation.
