You may have heard about text neck — the pain that results from bad posture while using your cell phone — but what about computer eyestrain? The average American spends seven or more hours a day looking at their screen, so it’s a condition you may be all too familiar with.
Eyestrain occurs when your eyes get tired from intense and focused use, like when you read or stare at digital devices for long periods of time. It usually isn’t serious, but it can cause your eyes to feel itchy, sore, dry or watery, and increases their sensitivity to light.
If these symptoms sound familiar after a long day’s work, then the American Optometric Association has a tip you can practice this May for Healthy Vision Month and beyond. To protect your eyes and reduce eyestrain, it’s recommended that you follow their easy 20-20-20 rule.
Taking a break is easy to forget and not always possible. So if you still experience symptoms, Optique 1 can offer relief. These homeopathic eye drops soothe red, dry, itchy, and burning eyes, as well as relieve irritation due to fatigue, computer work, and airborne irritants like pollen.* Optique 1 available in single-use vials that are convenient to keep at your work desk or in your purse.
