SAFETY TIP
March is Eye Safety Month!
In the Office
Symptoms of eye strain include:

  • blurred vision,

  • headaches,

  • burning eyes,

  • mental fatigue,

  • and increased sensitivity to light.
Take 20-20-20 Eye Breaks

Giving your eyes regular breaks will help minimize fatigue.

Every 20 minutes take a 20 second break by looking at something at 20 feet away (or more).

This forces you to adjust the focal distance of your sight, which allows some muscle groups to relax while others are forced to re-engage.
