This study aims to correlate pediatric dry eye symptomology with electronic device screen time (iPhones, iPads, video games, etc).  This study will utilize a modified version of the SPEED questionnaire - a short self-reported survey that asks questions about the way your  eyes are feeling and the severity.  This questionnaire has been modified to include a section on electronic device screen time usage, to determine if the amount of daily screen time plays a role in the clinical symptomology of dry eye disease.
