More than at any other time our eyes now have to stare at small screens, small type, iPhones, iPads, computer screens, videos, games… and we do this for many hours at a time. This is now causing some very new eye problems: eye fatigue, eye stress, near vision stress. And, this also will lead to age related problems as we get older.
You can, however do it all, just do it responsibly. You don’t have to have vision problems in the future. Eye stress, dry eyes have a new meaning in today’s computer / screen world.
RULE NUMBER 1
This is very important if you use a monitor, screen consistently.
– Try the 15/15/15 Rule. This means that you look away from your screen every 15 minutes, at an object (preferably something even out of a window), for 15 seconds. It’s easy to remember, right… 15/15/15.
