Digital eye strain is prevalent in many of our lives. With the increasing use of computers, phones, and tablets, our eyes are constantly working at a close or intermediate distance. Often, patients report dryness, burning, tearing due to reduced blinking when staring at a bright screen. It is common that extended users of digital devices also complain of tired, sore eyes, and even occasional blurred vision and headaches.
It is important to give our eyes a chance to relax. The 20-20-20 Rule is a simple way to prevent the symptoms associated with digital eye strain. Here’s how it works:
Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away, for 20 seconds.
This allows your eyes to relax, blink more, and refresh!
