March Focusing on Eye Health and Vision – What We Need to Know

March is a two-fold awareness month focusing on eye health (no pun intended). The American Optometric Association flags March for eye health and related issues like diabetes, contact lens safety and smoking. The national focus on eye health started in 1963. Since then, March has been dedicated to the importance of eye health and proper vision care.

Recently there has been an expanded interest in eye health and working, officially flagged as Workplace Eye Wellness Month. There is a condition called computer vision syndrome. It does not affect your sight, but does make your eyes irritated and tired. As we all work more and more on computers, most of us have or will experience this. Luckily, we can modify our work and habits to keep our eyes more comfortable.
1. Reposition the computer screen to be at the appropriate angle away from direct light. If needed, get an anti-glare screen.
2. Remember the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
3. Blink. Regularly blink or close your eyes to improve eye moisture throughout the day.
4. Use artificial tears. This helps in preventing dry eye and irritation.
5. Drink water. By drinking water, it helps maintain proper hydration.
6. Schedule regular eye exams.

Take time to contact your eye care provider for your routine eye exam.
