7 tips for the optimum use of digital media
Digital media are now an integral part of our everyday lives.
We have compiled seven tips for their optimum use.
Most people these days have mastered the use of the digital media and digital communication channels. 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 you should 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.
Taking exercise is good for your entire body, including your eyes. An added benefit: outdoor sports normally require no screen time.
We've all heard the saying "Carrots are good for your eyes," but is it actually true? It's difficult to prove. However, a US study on the subject of age-related eye disease has now proven that substances like lutein and zeaxanthin promote good health. These are contained in spinach and broccoli.
As practically everything these days functions digitally, it is often a real treat to view something from the analogue 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.

Screens, regardless of what form they take, are part and parcel of our everyday lives. 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 spectacle lenses. Here you can find the right lenses for your needs:
