Looking after your eyes now is more important than ever. During the first lockdown in March, 22% of British people noticed their vision get worse throughout this period, whilst 32% of people believed that spending more time in front of a screen has worsened their vision. Online communications have become more popular than ever, with the extended hours of staring at digital devices whilst working from home, scrolling through social media repeatedly out of boredom and not to mention binge watching through more than a few series. Trying to follow these simple 6 steps for yourself and your families eye health during this time will make all the difference for the health of your eyes.
These simple tips will go a long way towards protecting your eyes during this lockdown, and it is so important to remember how easy it can be to neglect your eyes as they often do not hurt when there’s a problem. Don’t forget that completing an eye test will not just tell you if you need new glasses or a change in prescription but check the health of your eyes as well. An optometrist can spot many general health problems and early signs of eye conditions before you’re aware of any symptoms, many of which can be treated if found early.
