If you're reading this right now, chances are that you are staring into a computer or phone screen.
Did you know the average adult spends approximately 6 hours a day looking at a digital screen?
Digital eye strain, or Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) can lead to common symptoms including eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain, which can become major long-term complications. These symptoms are caused by many factors, some of which include inadequate lighting, computer screen glare, improper distance from screen, poor seating posture, and not taking breaks.
Give your eyes a break by following the 20-20-20 rule recommended by ophthalmologists.
For every 20 minutes spent using a screen, you should try to look away at something that is 20 feet away from you for a total of 20 seconds.
