Digital Overuse Could Be Culprit of Headaches and Eye Strain from Virtual Learning

From e-learning to remote working throughout the pandemic and now with virtual back-to-school, screen time is once again skyrocketing. Digital screens emit high-energy blue light which can negatively impact long-term eye health. Constant near focus on digital screens causes the eyes to become overworked leading to headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, eye strain, and eye fatigue.

According to The Washington Post, “Headaches, anxiety and exhaustion caused by never-ending video meetings are no longer exclusively for adults trying to work from home during the pandemic. Some schools have started the fall semester with remote-learning setups that mimic what a full day of school was like before the coronavirus crisis.”

Viteyes®, a leading global eye health company, offers Viteyes Blue Light Defender Supplements which are formulated with Lutein & Zeaxanthin, the only natural defenses our eyes have against harmful blue light. In addition, Viteyes® Blue Light Defender Plus contains Astareal® Astaxanthin to help relieve overworked tired and strained eyes. These formulas can be taken from ages 12 through adults and are available as capsules and delicious blueberry gummies.


Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ Gummies and Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ + (capsules) contain 20 mg of Lutein and 4 mg of Zeaxanthin, the key eye nutrients that help absorb blue light before it reaches the macula. Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ + also contains Astareal® Astaxanthin, Bilberry, and Vitamin C and is free from common allergens. Viteyes® Blue Light Defender™ Gummies also contain Bilberry, are free from common allergens, Kosher-certified, pectin-based, and vegan.
