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 tips can help you give your eyes a rest during screen-intensive work.

Take 20

Every 20 minutes look at something at varying distances away from your device for at least 20 seconds, and then blink 20 times.

Practice palming

Gently cup your palms over your closed eyes for about 30 seconds. It can help calm and reset your eyes.

Check screen distance

The centre of your screen should be slightly below eye level, at about arms length.

Adjust text size & screen contrast

Set at your own comfort, but black print on a white background is usually the best combination.

Eat healthy

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

Get outside

Get away from all screens and take a walking break to look around, clear your mind and boost your energy.

Do more for your eyes off-screen

**All ACUVUE® contact lenses have UV Blocking to help provide protection against transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into the eye. 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 by your optician.

Filtering of HEV light by contact lenses has not been demonstrated to confer any systemic and/or ocular health benefit to the user. The Eye Care Professional should be consulted for more information.

Important information for contact lens wearers: ACUVUE® Contact Lenses can be used 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 instructions on proper lens care. Do not wear contact lenses if you have an eye infection, any eye disease or systemic disease, that may affect the eye, or if you are allergic to any ingredients. If you experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness or other eye problems, remove the lens and contact your Eye Care Professional immediately. For more information, including warnings and precautions, carefully read the Instructions for Use.
