The following tips will help you keep your eyes relaxed and avoid tired eyes.
Relieving eye-tiredness or strain is an essential tool to know. Eye-tiredness is a major contributor to headaches and itchy eyes.
Symptoms do not occur first thing the morning but can develop during the day due to focused attention on screens, texts and small objects that cause our eyes to strain in order to focus.
Begin by relaxing your eye muscles by closing your eyes and allowing them to rest for a short period of time.
It is important to shift your eye focus every thirty minutes or less. This focus can cause you look at another object far away, stare at something other than the computer, get up for a quick move around or simply look in a different direction.
Sometimes dry eyes occur from looking at screens, reading or straining the eyes in any way for an extended period of time. Teardrop solutions, or artificial tears, can be purchased at pharmacies and help to soothe the eyes. A natural alternative to teardrop products is to increase your intake of omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and water consumption. Providing your body with enough oils and water helps retain moisture in the eyes.
Natural light does wonders for the eyes so try to get some time outdoors during your day.
It is important to protect your eyes if you are constantly in the sun in order to protect it from straining because of intense light or glare. Avoid glare and reflections in your work environment as well.
A number of eye exercises such as squeezes or stretches can be found online. They help by increasing vision range and getting eyes to move in beneficial ways.
