Rebuild Your Vision 10-10-10 Rule

10-10-10 Rule ImageDon’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.

    Hi Tyler,
    I am short sighted, over 40 and have developed Presbyopia too. How do I get rid of both problems?

    Cool! The best thing it does is make me conscious about what I’m doing, so that I can’t waste hours for shit like Facebook. I hope it lowers my spectacles number, which is at -3.5.

    Is there an extension or app or something for computers that could let us know whenever 10 minutes have passed, I often get absorbed in youtube or video games. Also is this necessary or useful if you have a 20/20 eye exam score constantly though you do this stuff in all your free time for several years?

    Simply stare at the sun in the morning or evening while it is a little higher from the horizon. do thidaily. just before sunrise or sunset. let’s say before 8 – 9 am in morning or after 4 – 5 pm in evening, depending on the latitude where you are and your sensitivity to light. But as with everything start slowly and work up gradually to more time and a higher sun.. This is one of the beauty and purpose of Surya Namaskar,(paying homage to the great Lord Sun) All the best from India.
