Effectiveness of a participatory eye care program in reducing eye strain among staff computer users in Thailand

With integrated eye–neck exercises, the expanded PEC program consisted of a 3-hour training course on eye strain, rest breaks for 30 minutes every 30 minutes, and a 15-minute rest break. For 8 weeks, a total of 35 staff computer users have registered in each of intervention and control groups. Results: The intervention was associated with a decrease in the percentage of eye strain and repeated measures analysis of variance. At follow-up 1 and follow-up 2, significant differences were found between the intervention and the control groups. Conclusion: The results from the PEC study also strengthened the beneficial effect on KAP scores between the groups and times as a result of a participative strategy, which could be used by both researchers and computer users to reduce eye strain.

Digital eye strain and its associated factors in children during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, this research was conducted to determine the prevalence of diseases connected to the use of display systems and contributing factors in children engaged in distance learning. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Methods: Using Google Forms, an online survey form was created and sent to parents of children under the age of 18 years involved in distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The causes were investigated and correlated to the factors. The characteristics of display units children use, how often such products are used, the effects of digital eye strain, and the frequency and frequency of the symptoms were determined, as well as the correlations between the conditions. The mean duration of display device usage was 71. 1 36. 02 min without a break and 7. 02 4. 55 h per day. Conclusion: The increasing use of digital devices by children is exacerbating the problem of digital eye strain in children as a result of online learning.

Digital Eye Strain among Adults Presenting to Tertiary Care Hospital in the Era of COVID-19 Pandemic: A Descriptive Cross-sectional Study

A collection of vision-related signs that result from the regular use of computers, tablets, and smartphones, such as computers, tablets, and smartphones, are related to vision-related problems. In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, the present research was done to determine the prevalence of digital eye strain among the adult population in a tertiary care hospital. Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional research was conducted in a tertiary care hospital of Nepal from January 2021 to July 2021, after receiving ethical approval from the Institutional Review Committee. Conclusions: Among 318 respondents, there was 300 percent of digital eye strain. Eye strain was the most common digital eye strain symptom, followed by eye exhaustion 162. Conclusions: The present research found that the prevalence of digital eye strain in the COVID-19 period is elevated as compared to other studies of adults.

Digital eye strain among undergraduate medical students during the COVID-19 pandemic: A cross-sectional survey

The purpose and scop of the report: The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the use of online resources for education. This could result in digital eye strain in the student community. This report was designed to investigate the usage of digital equipment, the incidence of DES symptoms, and undergraduate medical students' understanding of DES. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional research that was conducted among undergraduate medical students of a medical college in Kerala using a well-organized, self-administered online questionnaire. 92 percent of those people reported experiencing the ocular and extra-ocular signs of DES. Although 78 percent of students knew that using digital devices could lead to eye strain, 79. 4% of students were aware that using digital devices could cause eye strain, and 20-20-20 rules prohibiting breaks in-between screen time. During the COVID-19 college shutdown, undergraduate medical students showed a high incidence of DES.

Impact of online classes and home confinement on myopia progression in children during COVID-19 pandemic: Digital eye strain among kids (DESK) study 4

The annual growth rate was estimated before COVID-19 and during COVID-19. Compared to pre-COVID-19, means annual myopia growth was found to be statistically significant during COVID-19 as compared to pre-COVID-19. Rapid myopia progression was discovered to be independent risk factors in rapid myopia progression in multivariate analysis, the experience of rapid expansion in the pre-COVID-19 period, and sun exposure 1 h/day. Parents should consider the danger of rapid myopia progression in children during the current pandemic and children should be encouraged with socially distant outdoor activities to increase sun exposure and reduce the rate of myopia progression.
