Do you use a Smartphone for more than three hours a day? Has your phone become an item you constantly keep checking throughout the day? Do you play games on your smart phones for hours? If any of these questions have a positive answer from your side then you’ve experienced some kinds of eye fatigue or eye stress after using your smartphone.

Pen and paper has been replaced by digital backlit screens and this transformation has become a stressful change for our eyes.

Children working on computers or engaged with smartphones for long hours can also experience these side effects.
