Work demands more of our eyes

With video conferencing and other digital work being the new normal, many are focusing on screens more than ever. It’s important to keep your eye health at the forefront.

Tips for giving your eyes a break

Whether you’re working from the kitchen table or from your office, these eight tips can help you give your eyes a rest during screen-intensive work.

Take 20

Every 20 minutes look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds, and then blink 20 times.

Remember to blink

Looking at digital screens can cause you to blink less, which can lead to discomfort.

Check screen distance

Your screen should be about two feet away with the centre about 10 to 15 degrees below your eyes.

Adjust text size, screen contrast & lighting

Black print on a white background is usually the best combination. And your display should be about the same brightness as your surroundings.

Eat healthy

Foods like spinach, salmon, eggs, beans, oranges, oysters and pork can help ward off age-related vision problems.

Get outside

Get away from all screens and take a walking break to clear your mind and boost your energy. But remember your sunglasses, even on cloudy days.

Do more for your eyes off-screen

#Helps protect against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea & into the eye.
WARNING: UV-absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed. NOTE: Long-term exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV-blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV-blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders. Consult your eye care professional for more information.

*Free trial contact lenses available only from participating eye care professionals. Exam and fitting fees not included.

Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE® Contact Lenses are available by prescription only for vision correction. An eye care professional will determine whether contact lenses are right for you. Although rare, serious eye problems can develop while wearing contact lenses. To help avoid these problems, follow the wear and replacement schedule and the lens care instructions provided by your eye care professional. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, or experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems. If one of these conditions occurs, remove the lens and contact your eye care professional immediately. For more information on proper wear, care and safety, talk to your eye care professional and ask for a Patient Instruction Guide, call 1-800-267-5098, or download the Patient Instruction Guides.
