Bringing Awareness to love our eyes.

As nowadays, people
had been spending a lot of time using electronic products like mobile phone, computer laptops any electronic devices with LCD screens.

Medical scientist had mentioned spending more hours of outdoor sports allow the sun rays to protect our eyes more effectively.

Ever heard about 20-20-20 rule?

If you find yourself gazing at screens all day, your eye doctor may have mentioned this rule to you.

Basically, every 20 minutes spent using a screen; you should try to look away at something that is 20 feet away from you for a total of 20 seconds.

Use lubricant eye drops when your eyes is dry and tired, eat a well balanced diet , exercise regularly for 30 minutes to maintain fitness, avoid sleeping late, avoid long hours of gaming and watching television, stop alcohol drinking and smoking.

Massaged your eye area and your side temple to relieve any tensions or stress due to long hours of viewing.
