A Problem Waiting to Be Solved: Videoconferencing Eyestrain

Meeting mainly over Zoom this last year has been a big adjustment for me. I used Zoom before the pandemic, but never daily. I’m feeling the effects of these video meetings on my eyes. After a full day of calls with minimal breaks, my eyes are tired. I’ve purchased blue-light glasses, which have helped, but I know this isn’t good for my eyes long-term.

Working from home will be a normal part of people’s life going forward. That means meeting over video will continue to be more common too. The eyestrain problem will likely only get worse. I think there’s a huge entrepreneurial opportunity to solve this problem for consumers.

I’m excited to see what types of solutions are created to solve this problem!
