Smart phones, laptops, tablets and other digital devices we use at work and on the go put information at our fingertips. They can also put a strain on our eyes.

During Save Your Vision Month, we want to remind you to be alert for symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome: eye strain, dry eyes, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision and loss of focus. If you experience any of these signs, schedule an appointment at our office. We can suggest changes in your digital work habits  or prescribe specialized eyeglasses that can improve your productivity, comfort and vision. 

A few simple rules to follow every day for screen time:

BLINK BLINK BLINK - when the screen is on we naturally blink less often than normal - FOMO - blinking replenishes the tear film which in turn keeps our eyes from becoming dry which in turn leads to blurred vision. 

Follow the 20-20-20 rule - every 20 minutes that you are on the screen, focus on an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds and BLINK

Do Blink exercise! - Yep - it counts as exercise as far as we are concerned! Close your eyes, squeeze your lids tight then relax while keeping the eyes closed. Open and repeat. 5 reps 3 to 4 times a day.
