Save Your Vision

March is Save Your Vision Month! Technology is growing so rapidly and it has become part of our everyday lives. Whether it be your phone, tablet, computer, or tv our eyes are always fixed on something. In each of these items there is blue light exposure which can do damage to our eyes just like UV lights. Here are some tips for when you are using these devices to take the strain away from your eyes. 

  • Turn off all your digital devices before you go to bed as they can disrupt your sleep patterns.
  • If you are on your device for more than 20 minutes, take a 20-second break where you focus your eyes on something else farther away. It is said that it takes 20 seconds for the eyes to relax.
  • Try to keep your screens an arms length away. The eyes won't have to work as hard.
  • Try to keep your brightness lower to reduce the strain. 

Make sure to be getting regular eye exams each year!
