Prevent Dry Eyes from Smartphones, Tablets and Computers
- Slower Blink Rate- Resulting in Dry Eye Syndrome A related problem is that when we focus on our screen tiny eye movements called saccades are disrupted. Saccades deliver refreshed visual information to the brain and blinking momentarily disrupts the saccade. Therefore, the blink rate slows so that we can continue the saccades without interruption. When blink rate slows, the protective tear film covering the surface of the eye begins to deteriorate. The tear film not only keeps our eyes moist, but brings nourishment and removes waste. The end result is dry eye syndrome and red, irritated, tired eyes.
Turn down screen brightness:
In the meantime, doctors recommend turning down screen brightness and decreasing screen usage time when possible. Heavy users can also purchase a screen cover to decrease exposure.
Avoid staring at a bright screen in dark lighting conditions, such as checking messages on your cell phone in a dark bedroom.
Taking breaks, remembering to blink and attention to exercise, diet and proper supplementation can also help to prevent eye damage from screens.
