Fresh air

The research shows that at the current time when we’re all spending so much time on our screens it is really good to for both our eyehealth and general health to get out into the fresh air. Now the evenings are drawing out and the weather is a little milder there is no excuse not to get out and about and enjoying the start of spring, benefiting your eyes and vision, and your general wellbeing.

Screen time

With so many of us using screens more and more it’s perhaps not surprising that we’re suffering from sore, tired eyes. Follow the 20:20:20 rule; every 20 minutes look up from your screen for 20 seconds, 20 feet away, if possible. During that time give several full blinks – and remember to keep blinking when you return to your screen.

It’s also very important for both your eye and general health to try and take some exercise out of doors in the fresh air and (hopefully) sunshine each day so try and get out for a walk, cycle or run.
