In the digital age, we spend more and more time in front of computers, smartphones, and TVs, which can have a negative impact on our eyesight. That’s why it’s important to pay special attention to taking care of your eyes. In this article, you will learn how to take proper care of your eyes and how to minimize the risks associated with excessive use of digital devices.

1. Regular check-ups
Regularly visiting an ophthalmologist is key to keeping your eyes healthy. A specialist can identify potential problems and suggest appropriate treatment. It is recommended to have regular eye check-ups at least once every two years, even if you have no obvious vision problems.

2. Exercise your eyes

Long hours spent staring at a screen can fatigue the eyes. To prevent this, practice eye exercises. This will help relax the muscles and improve circulation. For example, try the following exercises:

20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look at a distant object for 20 seconds to relieve eye fatigue.

Eye yoga: Focus on moving your eyes up, down, sideways, and clockwise and counterclockwise.

3. Optimize your work environment

When working on a computer or other digital devices, make sure to create an optimal work environment that includes:

  • Lighting: make sure you have enough and appropriate lighting. An ideal position for the computer desk is to the side of the window to prevent light from outside from reflecting onto the screen surface. It is also important to have central lighting in the room to evenly fill the entire space and prevent shadows from forming on the desk.
  • Ergonomics: Adjust the monitor so that it is at the optimum height and angle. It is also important to have a suitable chair and desk that supports correct posture.
  • Blue light filtering: This helps reduce the negative impact of blue light from digital screens. We recommend looking for glasses that block blue light. They will bring relief to your eyes and reduce irritation when viewing screens for long periods of time.

4. Limit time spent on digital devices

If you can, reduce the time you spend in front of digital screens. This applies not only to children but also to adults. Set a time limit for phone, computer, and TV use, especially before bedtime.

5. Keep your eyes moist

Eyes can dry out easily in an environment with air conditioning or heating. Remember to blink and use artificial tears if necessary to keep moisture in the eyes.

6. Healthy diet for healthy eyes

The diet also has an impact on eye health. Eating foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as minerals like zinc and lutein, helps maintain healthy eyesight. Include foods like carrots, spinach, fish, and nuts in your diet.
