The Bigger The Phone Or Tablet, The Less Eye Discomfort!
A recent study found that the size of the screen you use matters and using a larger font can also reduce eye discomfort!
This is an interesting finding that may help those who work out in the field with phones or tablets – the same study also found that the continued use of smartphones reduces blinking, which causes eye dryness.
The way we view smartphones and tablets and the patterns of usage is different to computers. We view smart phones much closer than computers, which increases the strain on our eyes.
Tablets better than phones for eye discomfort
The researchers were looking to see if the size of a smart device screen affects the user’s eye strain.
What they found was that the smaller the display, the greater the discomfort and the less time it took to feel discomfort. They found that discomfort started within 20 minutes of use!
If you have a choice between using a smartphone or a tablet, choose a tablet when reading articles or watching movies; or when you are trying to do something that takes an extended period of time.
