Maybe it's the Nintendo Switch that's got you hooked or perhaps you're still playing with an old-school Sega Genesis—no matter what device you're using to track down Zelda or save Princess Peach, your eyes probably get their fair share of screen time. According to studies, people blink half to a third less while using computers and other digital screen devices. What's this mean for your peepers? Dry, strained, sad little eyes. Blinking keeps your eyes in good working order. That unconscious movement we make about 15 times per minute keeps the moisture moving.
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, staring at a screen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) won’t cause permanent eye damage, but your vision may become blurry, and your eyes may feel dry and tired. That said, digital screens are huge a part of our lives, and we understand that when you're close to getting to the next level it's hard to put down the controller. So, to keep your lashes fluttering and your eye muscles relaxed, try the 20-20-20 rule (take a break every 20 minutes for 20 seconds, and look at objects 20 feet away) or try computer glasses. The specialty specs will soothe your eyes and let you continue dominating in your virtual world of choice. The ingenious eyewear helps reduce glare, increases contrast and maximizes what you see through the lenses to make saving a princess made of pixels a lot more comfortable.
