If you're one of the many who stares at their smartphone or computer all day, you could be hurting your eyes. Doing so can put a strain on the eyes leaving them tired, dry, and blurred vision. The Doctors share a simple routine you should incorporate into your everyday life: the 20/20/20 rule!
Every 20 minutes, shift your eyes and look at an object about 20 feet away, and look for about 20 seconds! This gives your eyes a break. "Unfortunately we didn't do it enough," ER physician Dr. Travis Stork jokes since all three of the hosts wear contact lenses and/or glasses.
According to the American Academy of Opthalmology, we normally blink 15 times per minute but when we look at our digital screens we only blink about a third of that! That is why our eyes get so fatigued and dry and why you should give the 20/20/20 rule a try!
