eye fatigue? Here's what you can do

How long ago did you look at your phone screen? Perhaps right now?

When we get a moment to take a break from the computer, what do we do? We turn our gaze from the computer screen to our smartphone or iPhone to rest, distract ourselves, flip through the news feed, etc. And only our eyes in these moments are not to rest.

Often our eyes are strained almost without a break.

Problems related to eye health are getting younger and younger. After all, from an early age, children are inseparable from the TV, tablet or phone. Today, it's a way of life. You can't change it. But it is possible to change the condition of the eyes: to support them, relieve tension and improve nutrition.

This is important both for adults and children. Especially strain on the eyes increases now - with the beginning of the school year: the children have begun to study, and many adults have finished their vacation and again began strenuous everyday life on the computer.

Why are our eyes so hard around gadgets?

1. At moments of intense eye strain, we blink less frequently. Normal - up to 20 times per minute. At work - about two to four times less often. So we deplete the tear film, our eyes lose their natural protection and become dry. You may experience burning, redness, or a foreign body sensation in your eye. And this is not just an effect on our comfort: red eyes are the very real "magnet" for infections - viruses, bacteria, fungi.

2. Many experts are convinced that the light of gadget screens, which is rich in the blue spectrum, is harmful to the retina. Blue light is the shortest light wave in the light spectrum, with the highest energy and intensity of scattering. Blue light causes irreversible photochemical reactions that destroy the photoreceptors and can cause damage to the central zone of the retina.

3.Nature has arranged our eyes so that we can see objects both far and near. To notice a tiger from afar and have time to hide, to be able to thread a needle to sew clothes and survive in the cold. To do this, there is a special mechanism inside our eyes that can shift focus from far away to near. But when most of our lives we look only in front of us - in a book, computer or gadget, very rarely looking into the distance, this mechanism does not work. And, as you know, any mechanism, if left idle, begins to deteriorate. The same happens to our ability to see into the distance. It is simply lost.

4.A poor diet and low content of useful microelements in it does not cover the necessary norm of vitamins and minerals. And when you take into account the high visual stress, there is always something to strive for.
Top 5 helpful tips for vision

1. PC monitor. Not all computer screens are equally harmful to vision. LCD monitors cause the least stress: they do not have an electron-beam tube, which can create electromagnetic radiation, so LCD monitors are deprived of this danger.

When choosing the monitor keep in mind that the frame frequency should be not less than 60 Hz for normal perception.

However, at work we often don't have an opportunity to choose the monitor we want, so we have to work with what we have, so, going forward.

Try to reduce the amount of glare that may appear on the screen: for example, try to cover the technique from sunlight.

2. PC and gadget monitors. When it's dark, turn on the lights in the room. Staring at a screen in complete darkness is bad for your eyesight.

3. Prevent dry eyes. To restore the tear film, several times a day give your eyes a blinking moment: blink intensely for 1-2 minutes. Also every 30 minutes take your eyes off the screen and squeeze your eyelids tightly.

4. Tear your eyes away from the close screen more often and look into the distance. Every 20 minutes.

5. Less blue. To preserve your vision - less blue radiation around you (if possible) and more intensive retinal support and nourishment.
