7 tips for healthy vision with digital devices
Digital media is now an integral part of everyday life.
We have compiled seven tips for keeping your digital eyes healthy.
Most people these days have mastered digital communication. What on earth would we all do without our laptops and smartphones? Here are seven useful tips showing how to best deal with your everyday digital life – particularly when it comes to your eyes.
Use it wisely
Let us start with the most important piece of advice: use your laptop, smartphone and tablet wisely. Always remember that you are viewing a screen.
Limit your screen time
If you have a job that requires the constant use of a screen eight hours a day, then try to relax your eyes when you get home after work.
Do something different
Simply try to do something where you require neither a smartphone nor a laptop. In other words, give your eyes a rest - they will thank you for it.
Exercise is good for your entire body, including your eyes. An added benefit: outdoor sports usually happen away from screens.
We've all heard the saying "Carrots are good for your eyes," but is it actually true? It's been hard to prove. However, a study of age-related eye disease has now proven that lutein and zeaxanthin, found in spinach and broccoli, promote good eye health.
As practically everything these days functions digitally, it can be a real treat to view something from the analog world. Whether it is a photo, an art exhibition or a vinyl record cover, your eyes will be grateful for a little bit of culture.
The right eyeglass lenses
Screens, regardless of what form they take, are part of everyday life. The obvious remedy for your eyes is to allow them to relax and recover from screen light. And you can do precisely that by wearing the right eyeglass lenses.
