🤓Optix-Words😎 - With so many of us using computers at work, computer eye strain has become a major job-related complaint. Studies show that eye strain and other bothersome visual symptoms occur in 50 to 90 percent of computer workers. Here are 10 easy steps you can take to reduce your risk of computer eye strain and other common symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS): 1) Get a comprehensive eye exam. Having a routine comprehensive eye exam is the most important thing you can do to prevent or treat computer vision problems. During your exam, be sure to tell your eye doctor how often you use a computer at work and at home. Measure how far your eyes are from your screen when you sit at your computer, and bring this measurement to your exam so your eye doctor can test your eyes at that specific working distance. 2) Use proper lighting. Eye strain often is caused by excessively bright light either from outdoor sunlight coming in through a window or from harsh interior lighting. When you use a computer, your ambient lighting should be about half as bright as that typically found in most offices. Many computer users find their eyes feel better if they can avoid working under overhead fluorescent lights. If possible, turn off the overhead fluorescent lights in your office and use floor lamps that provide indirect incandescent or halogen lighting instead. 3) Minimize glare. Glare on walls and finished surfaces, as well as reflections on your computer screen also can cause computer eye strain. Consider installing an anti-glare screen on your monitor and, if possible, paint bright white walls a darker color with a matte finish. If you wear glasses, purchase lenses with anti-reflective (AR) coating. AR coating reduces glare by minimizing the amount of light reflecting off the front and back surfaces of your eyeglass lenses. 4) Blink more often. Blinking is very important when working at a computer; blinking moistens your eyes to prevent dryness and irritation. When working at a computer, people blink less frequently — about one-third as often as they normally do — and many blinks performed during computer work are only partial lid closures, according to studies. To reduce your risk of dry eyes during computer use, try this exercise: Every 20 minutes, blink 10 times by closing your eyes as if falling asleep (very slowly). This will help rewet your eyes. 5) Exercise your eyes. Another cause of computer eye strain is focusing fatigue. To reduce your risk of tiring your eyes by constantly focusing on your screen, look away from your computer at least every 20 minutes and gaze at a distant object (at least 20 feet away) for at least 20 seconds. Some eye doctors call this the "20-20-20 rule." Looking far away relaxes the focusing muscle inside the eye to reduce fatigue. 6)Take frequent breaks. To reduce your risk for computer vision syndrome and neck, back and shoulder pain, take frequent breaks during your computer work day. During your computer breaks, stand up, move about and stretch your arms, legs, back, neck and shoulders to reduce tension and muscle fatigue. 7) Modify your workstation. If you need to look back and forth between a printed page and your computer screen, this can cause eye strain. Place written pages on a copy stand adjacent to the monitor. Light the copy stand properly. You may want to use a desk lamp, but make sure it doesn't shine into your eyes or onto your computer screen. 8) Consider computer eyewear. For the greatest comfort at your computer, you might benefit from having your eye care professional modify your eyeglasses prescription to create customized computer glasses. This is especially true if you normally wear contact lenses, which may become dry and uncomfortable during sustained computer work. Computer glasses also are a good choice if you wear bifocals or progressive lenses, because these lenses generally are not optimal for the distance to your computer screen.
🤓Optix-Words😎 - Have you ever considered purchasing cheap glasses online... or a mall kiosk? Many times prices are so low, it seems like too good to be true😅. When you purchase inexpensive glasses from online retailers, you could be jeopardizing your eye health and vision. 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️3 MAIN REASON to avoid cheap glasses: 1) Sacrificing Quality There is little regulation or oversight for online retailers, and often they will sacrifice quality in order to lower prices. Cheap glasses are often made from lenses that are fabricated in-house without any lens experts present. Additionally, lens coatings are not always applied correctly and frames can be made of inferior materials that can break easily. 2) Questionable Materials Used Cheap glasses tend to be made from the least expensive material available. Along with breaking, low-grade materials can create serious skin irritation or may contain toxic substances that can lead to illness. For example, the sun can easily bleach cheap plastic frames, and inferior metal frames often contain nickel alloys that can cause skin irritations or discolorations. And there is always the danger that cheap glasses frames contain lead paint that could cause health implications. 3) Missing out on Expert Knowledge When you buy cheap glasses, one of the biggest sacrifices you make is missing the expertise of optometrists and opticians. Wearing incorrect prescription eyewear can cause eyestrain and headaches. Plus, skipping annual eye exams can leave you vulnerable to eye disease that could have been caught early by a licensed optometrist. An optician has the knowledge to recommend frames that will complement your facial structure and the skills to fit your eyeglasses to ensure they don’t cause you any pain.

"Glaucoma is a group of related eye disorders that cause damage to the optic nerve that carries information from the eye to the brain", said John Berdahl, MD. This eye disease is terrifying because it gives no symptoms before patient starts losing vision. However, there are ways to prevent. Exercise regularly and an active lifestyle may be effective to some people. Quit smoking, maintaining and having a healthy diet may help too. You're at risk for Glaucoma if you have blood relatives with this disease. It is advisable to go through a thorough eye exam every 2 years to ensure good eye health.
🤓Optix-Words😎 - Cleaning your eyeglasses daily is the best way to keep them looking great and prevent lens scratches and other eyewear damage. But there's a right way — and plenty of wrong ways — when it comes to how to clean glasses.🤗🤗 Steps for Cleaning Your Glasses: 1) Wash and dry your hands thoroughly 2) Rinse your glasses under a gentle stream of lukewarm tap water. 3) Apply a small drop of lotion-free dish washing liquid to each lens. 4) Gently rub both sides of the lenses and all parts of the frame for a few seconds. 5) Rinse both sides of the lenses and the frame thoroughly. 6) Gently shake the glasses to eliminate most of the water from the lenses. 7) Carefully dry the lenses and frame with a clean, lint-free towel. 8) Inspect the lenses again. Don'ts: - 1) DON'T use your shirttail or other cloth to clean your glasses, especially when the lenses are dry. This can scratch your lenses. 2) DON'T use saliva to wet your lenses. (Ugh, do I even have to explain why?) 3) DON'T use household glass or surface cleaners to clean your eyeglasses. These products have ingredients that can damage eyeglass lenses and coatings, such as anti-reflective coating. 4) DON'T use paper towels, napkins, tissues or toilet paper to clean your lenses. These can scratch or smear your lenses or leave them full of lint. 5) DON'T try to "buff away" a scratch in your lenses. This only makes the situation worse.
🤓Optix-Words😎 - It's particularly important to follow guidelines for safe handling of soft contact lenses in light of recent outbreaks of serious fungal eye infections associated with a popular (now discontinued) brand of contact lens cleaning/disinfecting solution. 5 Easy Steps to Follow: 1) Wash your hands so that you don't transfer dirt and germs to your eye. Try to avoid moisturizing soaps, as they are not good for contact lenses. Dry your hands with a lint-free towel. 2) Remove one lens and clean it with the recommended solution. Cleaning removes eye-produced buildup, cosmetics and other debris that impairs lens comfort. The FDA recommends that you rub the lens in the palm of your hand with a few drops of solution, even if you are using a "no-rub" product. 3) 2Rinse the lens again to remove the loosened debris, making sure to take as long as the package directs: Rinsing is an important step. 4) Place the lens in your clean lens case or lens holder and fill with fresh solution; don't "top off" your old solution. Disinfecting kills microorganisms on the lens. Disinfection time varies from product to product; check the package for details. 5) Repeat steps two through four for your other lens.
