The old 20/20/20 rule

Eye Care Tip of the Week #6

20 - 20 - 20............

Your eye is a muscle that can become strained and fatigued with chronic over use. Working on computer monitors, watch TV all day, reading books or doing paper work can lead to frontal headaches, eye strain, sore burning eyes, and general fatigue. It can also lead to something known as pseudo-myopia, where you become temporarily more nearsighted at the end of the day and notice increased blur when you drive home. 

Now you probably can't quit your job because you likely have a mortgage to pay. So what's the solution? 

Just follow the old 20/20/20 rule!

Every 20 minutes |  Take a 20-second break  |  Look at something 20 feet away 

Go ahead and give it a shot, we're sure you'll feel better at the end of the day. You might even feel up to working an extra hour or two for the boss.
