Take an eye break

Why is it that we are reluctant to take 30 seconds a day to care for our eyes?

Americans spend, on average, 40 minutes a day grooming themselves. Personal care and hygiene are not areas in which we cut back on, when it comes to both time and money. We know that basic hygiene keeps us healthy, clean, and presentable. So why is it that we are reluctant to take 30 seconds a day to care for our eyes?

A new perspective on eye health

Most of us cannot imagine life without 24/7 access to our smartphones, tablets, personal computers and social media. But what many of us do not realize is that our modern day lifestyle habits, which may have expanded our networks and deepened our knowledge, may have actually impaired our vision or worsened existing eye conditions.

Today, such symptoms as eyestrain, red, irritated and dry eyes affect millions of people of all ages around the world. Some ophthalmologists fault staring at computers and smartphones as a cause of such symptoms, known as Dry Eye Syndrome and Computer Vision Syndrome, as when we stare at such devices we often forget to blink.

On average we blink 13-15 times per minute, but as computer users we may blink less, around 4-6 blinks per minute. When we blink, the tears give us high-quality vision, keep our eyes healthy and protect from irritants, and lubricate, nourish and guard the front of the eye. Although when we blink less we get more done, this phenomenon does take a toll on our eyes. As a result it is critical to find a solution that helps maintain the function of tear spreading and protects against dryness.

In general, protecting your eyesight includes taking care of your overall health with good sleep habits, a balanced diet, regular exercise and letting your eyes rest, in addition to taking preventative measures and creating a daily eye care regimen. One of the cores of treatment in controlling chronic bacterial and allergen inflammations and relieving common dry eye symptoms is eyelid hygiene or cleaning. Just like your morning run or daily meditation breaks, once you get into the daily routine of cleaning your eyelids you will find that over time it will improve your condition and help prevent eye conditions from developing.
