Do you wonder how extended screen time is affecting your child’s eyes? Curious about blue light and whether the new glasses really work? Do you want some tips on how to protect your child from becoming nearsighted?
Against the backdrop of virtual learning, lockdowns, and dramatically increased screen use, Children and Screens’ next webinar will focus on the critically important topic of eye health in children and adolescents. Tune in for “Eyes on Screens: Protecting Your Kids’ Ocular Health in a Digital World,” a Children and Screens Ask the Experts virtual workshop on Wednesday, December 16th at noon EST. An interdisciplinary panel of experts will discuss the latest research on the relationship between increased screen use, vision, headaches, eye strain, dry eyes and other issues as well as what we know about time spent outdoors and blue light glasses. Through an engaging conversation and live question-and-answer session, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and screen time experts will offer practical, concrete advice for parents, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, and others.
If you submit a question for the panel, please identify whether you would like to be considered to ask your question live on camera.
