Labor Day is a day of rest or the last chance for a trip before summer ends. It’s also an opportunity to treat your self to some good rest relaxation. Much of the time, relaxation consists of watching television, searching the web or reading a book. But, what about your eyes? When do they get to rest? Here are a few tips that will help you give your eyes the rest they deserve.
Many of us tend to blink even less than normal when working on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Dry eyes can be a result of prolonged use. Make an effort to blink more often as blinking manufactures tears that dampen and refresh your eyes.
Close Your Eyes
Relaxation exercises can ease muscle tension in your eyes. With your eyes covered, take a deep breath through your nose and hold it for five seconds and exhale. Repeat this deep breathing for 15 to 20 seconds. Try to take time to close your eyes like this several times a day.
Improve Air Quality
Using a humidifier, lowering your thermostat and avoiding smoke are all ways to prevent your eyes from drying out. Moisture replenishes the eyes in this manner several time a day.
Use Appropriate Eyewear
Specialty eyewear can help you optimize your vision for nearly any situation. While one size fits all might be true in some situations, it’s rare the one pair of eyeglasses is suitable in all circumstances.
These simple tips can help you give your eyes the rest that they deserve. We look forward to seeing you at your next visit.
