Take a quick glance around you. First, you’re giving your eyes a much needed rest from the increasing amount of screen time we’re subject to each day. Now, observe how many other people are peering at cell phone or computer screens. Spending increased amounts of time in front of our screens on computers, phones and tablets can become problematic, resulting in headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, body tension and other concerns. Adapting to changing times, our use of technology has drastically increased beginning at younger ages and continuing into later in life. All of the online conferences, virtual classes, and entertaining video games and movies have many of us dealing with eye strain and fatigue. We've learned about healthy eye care habits to support tech time management.

Healthy Eye Care Habits to Support Tech Time Management
Here are a few healthy eye care habits to support tech time management-
Rest and Refocus - Let's be truthful, time can really get away from you when engaged in tech time. Here's a useful tip to keep in mind for yourself and your family when using technology, it's the 20/20/20 practice- Take a break every 20 minutes to look away from your screen at an object approximately 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
Light Right - How many times have you sat around thoroughly entertained by the glowing light of an electronic device? Even though our tech devices are capable of providing lighting, placing a light source over your shoulder will comfortably brighten the room with fewer shadows or reflections.
Block Blue Light - Natural blue light from sunlight helps regulate our sleep and wake cycles, while added blue light from digital screens can disrupt our natural sleep patterns. CalmOptics offers family-friendly line of cute and indestructible, non-prescription glasses designed to block blue light from computers, tablets, TVs, and other digital screens.
CalmOptics frames are durable and available in an array of fashionable colors in three collections for the perfect fit-
Kids – Ages 3-9
Teen – Ages 10-16
Adult – Unisex Styles Available
Proper Position - Being centrally and firmly grounded is of great importance in our lives on many different levels. Sitting upright in a position where your device or keyboard are comfortably aligned and adjusted to the proper line of vision and range of movement helps reduce the discomforts of body tension.
Open and Close - Too often I've found myself staring wide-eyed at some mesmerizing digital goodies simply too good to turn away from. Avoid the effects of eye fatigue by blinking your eyes a little more frequently to prevent the effects of dry eyes.
