#blubworldtech - Is your 'Screen' harassing you?

In the age of technology, Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain has become common and chronic. With people hooked on to their mobile phones, computers, tablets, laptops and televisions, for work and for entertainment, there is little to no respite to eyes and the brain.

Computer Vision Syndrome is described as a group of eye and vision-related problems due to prolonged use of electronic gadgets. Children and adults may experience uneasiness in eyes and visualization problems when exposed to digital screens for unmitigated periods. The level of discomfort is bound to increase if the mind, body and soul are not given enough time to ease out and recuperate.

Discussed below are some easy tips to help improve and maintain your vision (which is pretty important for you to see the beautiful things in this world):

1. Take conscious efforts to blink eyes multiple times to keep them naturally clean and moist

2. Ensure that your electronic device viewing space is well lit and ventilated (So, no cell phones at night!)

3. If your exposure to screen is unavoidable, try using anti-glare screens or wear computer glasses to minimize glare and reflection from light sources

4. Place your monitor screen or laptop at appropriate distance and angles to protect eyes and also to avoid spasm in back, neck and shoulders

5. Use the 20-20-20 Trick. Every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away, minimum

From eating nutritious food like salads, nuts and fishes to frequently washing eyes with cold water, relaxing them by viewing lush green color in the morning and closing eyes to listening to the birds chirping, care for your eyes to unwind! This will also help reduce stress and lighten up your temperament while also make you more productive and focused.

If you face any discomfort in your eyes and vision or notice a regular occurrence of headaches and burning in eyes, visit an ophthalmologist immediately. Know that eye care is critical and must never be ignored.
