Don’t let the things you love to do destroy your vision. Reading, using computers, and watching television, while enjoyable can be dangerous to your sight.
These every day activities involve near point stress on your eyes.
Give your eyes a break. It doesn’t take long and the benefits can be huge. If you have to read or work on the computer for more than 10 minutes at a time, remember to take a vision break.
Remember the 10-10-10 Rule
Look up from your book or computer and focus on anything that is at least 10 feet away from you for 10 seconds.
10-10-10: Every 10 minutes, look at something 10 feet away, for at least 10 seconds.
This short vision break is so important, you might want to print it out and hang it in your office or near your computer to remind you to take a vision break every 10 minutes while you’re working.
