Reddened eyes, watch out for PCs, smartphones and tablets

The reddened eyes are a rather common disorder that, in addition to having pathological causes (even more or less serious), may also depend on climatic factors or other more or less frequent behaviors, sometimes even from the many hours spent in front of a PC monitor.

Redness of the eyes

Eye redness is also quite common in all those people who spend a lot of time in front of the PC (think, for example, of all those who now have to work in smart working mode).

But red eyes are a problem often suffered by many young people who spend a lot of time in front of smartphones and tablets, perhaps even before going to sleep.

According to some research, when you spend a lot of time in front of a bright screen, our eyes close less frequently.

In fact, we normally open and close them about 17-20 times a minute.

If this frequency is reduced, the eyes may become dry, fatigued, and more likely to turn red.

A useful suggestion is to Take small breaks every 45 minutes When you are in front of the PC screen.

While, for those who frequently use tablets and smartphones, the suggestion is to limit their use, preferring rather other types of evening activities such as reading a good book or doing meditation.

If you really cannot do without using these devices, you can wear specific blue light filter glasses, filtering out the blue lights that are emitted by electronic devices.

Also, if you wear contact lenses, to avoid dry eyes, you should use artificial tears.

Those who use glasses

Those who use glasses, on the other hand, should choose them so that they provide a clear, sharp and comfortable view of what is on the screen.

Posture in front of the screen is also crucial: it is important to have an appropriate distance from the screen, so as to prevent eye fatigue and redness.

It is also important that the environment is bright because darkness damages eyesight.
