In the digital age, too much screen time is a common problem. According to comparitech.com, we spend over 43% of our waking hours looking at a screen. A typical user in Asia logs 439 minutes, or over 7 hours, of screen media per day compared with the global average of 417 minutes. Screen-time consumption is the highest in the world in the Philippines, with Filipinos spending almost 70% of their waking hours on a computer or mobile.
High usage of digital devices can cause eyestrain – like dry or tired eyes – in some people. Changes to tear film composition, such as increase of inflammatory markers and tear osmolarity, have been reported in computer users. Oxidative stress also comes into play, since the eye is one of the major targets of reactive oxygen species attack, due to its exposure to several environmental factors.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, especially antioxidant and anti-inflammatory micronutrients, can have an adverse effect on eye health. Therefore, SternVitamin has created a new premix concept – SternEyeCare to promote eye health to help combat the intensive use of digital devices and screens.
It contains vitamins A, C, D, E, B2, B12 and zinc, to protect cells from oxidative stress, reduce inflammation and support overall eye health. The powerful blueberry extract, in combination with pantothenic acid, improves tear flow and moisturization. In addition, the premix contains essential micronutrients to reduce tiredness, boost energy and protect the nervous system.
