BEWARE OF SCREENS
Did you know that bright light directed into the eyes can cause permanent damage?
The sun is one of the most brilliant light sources that you regularly encounter, and you take caution by not looking at it directly under a naked eye. The sun produces invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays, causing permanent eye damage if you have an extended exposure.
Did you know that some light sources that do not emit as much light as the sun, including screens, tvs and computers, can still damage your eyes?
Your TV and smartphone produce blue light, which negatively affects your eyesight. Blue light has high amounts of energy and short wavelengths, which harms your vision.
Staring at the screen for to long leads to digital eye strain. This can cause:
- Dry eyes
- Blurred vision
Other factors that can cause digital strain include the length of exposure and posture adopted when staring at the source of blue light.
Below are Tips to Help You Alter Your Blue Light Environment:
Blue light glasses block harmful light rays from electronic screens. These glasses help your eyes relax giving you less of a headache. If you stare at a computer all day or enjoy watching TV, you need to try blue light glasses!
Keep Your Distance
Your eyes strain when trying to see closer images. Position your monitor at arm's length and ensure your eye gaze slants towards the ground.
Use a matte screen filter to reduce blue light from your screen. Your eyes work harder when the screen is brighter than the surrounding environment.
Give Your Eyes a Break
Take a break after every 20 minutes by looking at an object which is at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Also, remember to blink since this helps your eyes relax.
Keep Your Eyes Moist
Use a desktop humidifier at home or at the office. These places tend to have less humid air. Be aware, heaters take humidity from the air during the colder months and there is generally less moisture outside in the air. Air humidifiers during winter can make a tremendous difference. If anything, you can lubricate your eyes when they become dry by using eye drops.
