How can you protect your eyes and live healthy?

Healthy living for me doesn’t mean only eating healthy and exercising. Which is why I won’t talk about that.

I want to remind everyone something that we often forget to think about – our eye health.

Today we spend so much time in front of digital devices that it’s a huge challenge for our eyes to stay healthy and strong.

So here is what I do in order to maintain good eye health:

  1. Exercises
  2. Breaks
  3. Blue light filter
  4. Monitor

Exercises

I do eye exercises. Rolling your eyes around very fast, blinking as fast as you can for a minute, following the 20–20–20 rule – these are things that help me a lot. I work and study – every day I spend 6–7 or even more hours in front of my computer so it’s no wonder that I need something to help me relax my eyes.

Breaks

I try to take breaks once in a while. While I’m on computer I try to stand up for 2–3 minutes, go to the window and look as far as I can. That way you switch focus and your eyes won’t get tired so easily.

Blue light filter

As I mentioned, I spend a lot of time in front of my PC and I needed something to help me protect my eyes while on PC. The Blue light filter is exactly what I was looking for. The one I use is calledΒ Iris.

It:

  • blocks the blue light
  • controls the PWM Flicker
  • controls the brightness
  • reminds me to take breaks
  • helps me work longer
  • helps me achieve more

Monitor

Also, I highly recommend you to use a matte monitor – when your monitors don’t reflect anything from your surroundings, your eyes will feel way better.
