Eye Strain – Tips to Prevent Headaches and Pain

Whether it is through our computer monitors, tablets, cell phones or other devices, we get a tremendous amount of screen time each week.  Eyestrain becomes a concern when you are intensely focused on a task without taking a break.  Glare, contrast levels, awkward viewing angles and a focus that frequently causes to blink less all contribute to possible issues with eyestrain.

The good news is that a few quick tips can help you avoid eyestrain issues.

•     Take breaks – taking a short break helps you relax your posture and allows your eyes to rest from focusing on the screen.

•     Adjust your lighting – find a comfortable light level for your device and surroundings

•     Keep your screen clean – wipe down your device to avoid dust or smudges that may cause you to unknowingly strain your eyes

•     Get your eyes checked – set up an appointment to get your eyes check to make sure you are not putting extra stress on your eyes by straining to focus

•     Rethink your eyewear – if you wear glasses, ask about lens coatings such as anti reflective coating or tinting that can reduce glare and wear polarized sunglasses to avoid squinting when outdoors

A few simple tips can help you avoid a possible headache or other discomfort while still enjoying your technology.

Polarized Lenses-Superior Sun Protection

When it comes to sun protection for your eyes, there is no doubt that the market is flooded with many different options for shielding your eyes from the suns harmful rays. The best choice by far is choosing a polarized lens. Polarized lenses have the unique distinction of being the ultimate protection for your eyes. Unlike a tinted or darkened lens a polarizpolar1ed lens has an actual filter adhered to the inside of the lens. The polarized filter is what blocks the harmful rays and protects the eyes. The polarized lens blocks blinding glare and 100% harmful UVA and UVB light from the sun. They are also incredibly soothing to the eyes and can actually enable you to see contrast in a way any other lens treatment could not. Typically, polarizing_filterpolarized is offered in brown, gray and popular G15 gray green. It also comes in just about any lens type on Simply Eyeglasses from progressive to lined bifocal to single vision.

We support ultimate eye health and having a polarized sunglass is just about the best way to ensure no damage comes to your eyes when in the sun.
