Five Things to Do to Protect Eyes

What we cannot leave most every day is what? I believe many people’s answer is mobile phone.

Everyone should have such an experience. After using electronic products such as mobile phones, computers and tablets for a long time every day, eyes are prone to fatigue and discomfort, and serious cases may also lead to eye diseases.

But for many people, they cannot work without mobile phones and computers every day. What should they do?

Dr. Clove will talk about 5 methods that can effectively protect eyes.

First, use less mobile phones, computers and other electronic products

Although most people cannot work without computers, we still use them as little as possible. Especially after work, for example, don’t bring your mobile phone when squatting in the pit, and don’t play with your mobile phone when going to bed.

This is because when our eyes are staring at the screen, the number of blinks will be uncomfortably reduced, making tears evaporate more, which is easy to cause dry eyes.

Moreover, our eyes need to be adjusted to see the things nearby (within 6 meters, they are all close). After a long time, our eyes will be tired and fatigue symptoms such as acid swelling will occur.

Just like riding a bicycle, looking at things nearby is equivalent to going uphill, but it takes a lot of effort. Looking at things in the distance is equivalent to going downhill without pressure.

This is why when I was a child, I was often educated. After reading for a long time, I had to look at the reason why I had a rest in the distance.

However, I know it is very difficult for you to do it, after all, how can you live without electronic products? Next, let’s look at other tips…

Second, the correct use of electronic products

Distance is very important. Simply put, if you can watch TV, you should watch as little computer as possible. If you can watch a computer, try to watch your mobile phone as little as possible. Because the smaller the screen, the closer the eyes will be, and generally the more tired the eyes will be.

In addition, the following four points should be done:

    The distance between the eyes and the display shall not be less than 50 cm; The line of sight is about 15 ~ 20 cm higher than the center of the screen. Adjust the font size to see clearly without squinting. Adjust the brightness of the display so that it can be seen clearly without effort and dazzling eyes.

Three, let the eyes [catch your breath]

Don’t use your eyes for a long time without rest. To combine work and rest with your eyes, you should do the following two things:

Step 1 Blink more

You can consciously blink more and let your eyes secrete more tears to improve the symptoms of dryness.

Step 2 Reasonable rest

Don’t sit for a long time, you can get up and walk irregularly, drink water, look out of the window, green plants, etc. Reasonable rest and regular intermission can restore the adjustment function of eyes.

There is a simple and easy-to-remember 20-20-20 principle for your reference, that is, every 20 minutes you use the computer, look 20 feet (about 6 meters) away for at least 20 seconds.

Four, regularly check the eye degree

Many people think that as adults, the degree will not change, but in fact it is not necessarily. Especially for people with high myopia, it is necessary to re-optometry every year to see if the degree has changed and whether the glasses worn are still suitable.

Many people do not change a pair of glasses for many years, but changes in eye power and wear of lenses will cause extra burden on the eyes.

It is usually recommended to replace a pair of glasses every 2 years.

Five, the use of air humidifier

In dry places, it is really necessary to use air humidifiers. Office workers can put a small air humidifier beside the computer to increase local air humidity and make dry eyes much more comfortable.

Finally, Dr. Clove still needs to remind everyone that it is useless to know that no matter how much you don’t do, you might as well start with the simplest blink of an eye.
