Exposure to screens has increased in recent years making taking care of our eye health more important than ever.
When we talk about maintaining eye health, we are referring to taking care of your eyes in the face of discomfort such as dryness or itching for different reasons such as the weather, screen overuse, eyestrain or exposure to the sun.
To prevent this dryness and preserve eye hydration, you can use eye drops and ophthalmic solutions with sodium hyaluronate. Its hygroscopic power helps to alleviate discomfort caused by eye fatigue, mild irritation or lack of moisture due to other causes.
Other tips to look after your eyes: use approved sunglasses (eyes are very sensitive to sun exposure), as well as specific protective glasses depending on activity, work or sport. Take breaks when you are working on the computer, mobile phone or tablet. Every half hour, look away from the screen and let your gaze reach a more distant horizon for a minute. A varied and balanced diet, including fatty acids such as omega 3 (EPA and DHA), will also have a positive impact on eye health. In case of persistent discomfort, consult a healthcare professional.
