Healthy Eye Tips For The “New Norm”

With this “new norm” that we are currently living in, the life we live, as we know, has gradually changed as well.

Changes in our lifestyle and way of life forced us to be adaptable. One of which is more reliance on digital devices and online services, as many people are stuck at home most of the time under the new conditions.

Given this, our eyes are also affected as they have to do their work for us even more. With that, here are some consensus healthy eye tips to incorporate to keep your eyes as healthy as possible.

  • Take a break from digital devices or other near work, such as the 20/20/20 rule of looking away from the screen every 20 minutes and focusing on an object at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
  • Maintain an appropriate distance from the screen, using the 1/2/10 rule — mobile phones ideally 1 foot, desktop devices and laptops at 2 feet, and TV screens at roughly 10 feet depending on the size of the screen.
  • Designate a “sleep time” for screens
  • Encourage movement, physical activity, and time spent outdoors within the bounds of quarantine recommendations.
  • Create a healthy media plan, including regulating time spent using digital devices.

These helpful eye tips can sure help save your eyes and vision.
