Dry, Itchy eyes? Blame the Screens

Staring at your cellphone and computer could be giving you Dry-Eye disease… an irritating, vision-blurring condition that 10 percent of adults suffer from.

Time spent staring at your cellphone and computer monitor could be giving you Dry-Eye disease… an irritating, vision-blurring condition that a British study found 10 percent of adults suffer from.

It can become a chronic problem if left unchecked.

Doctors say when you stare at a screen for too long, you forget to blink, leading to an evaporated tear film that dries eyes and causes burning, scratching and fuzzy vision..

…the fix…

Every 20 minutes look away for 20 seconds and blink repeatedly. You’ll reduce the strain on the eye muscle that’s caused by focusing on one thing constantly.
