When we breathe, we may not realize how important each and every breath means to us. When we see, we may not realize how precious and lucky we are to be able to see the world. Eyes are one of the most important parts of our body. We shall never take our vision for granted and strain our eyes all the time. Staring at monitor for long hours could lead to blurred vision, double vision, dry red eyes, eye irritation, headaches or neck / back pain. If you have experienced some of the above symptoms, most probably you are having computer vision syndrome (CVS). CVS is not a specific illness or problem, it is a term for general eyestrain and discomfort due to long-time usage of computer. Continuously working in front of computer requires focus at the monitor, at times you might shift your gaze at documents and back to the monitor, and it is very tiring for your eyes as they need to accommodate to different level of light and objects. It is also very easy concept for us to understand that continuous repetition of action could cause injuries or over-stress to our body, same for our eyes.
If you ignore the symptoms, it will definitely affect your vision as well as your work performance. Therefore, start loving your eyes.
Protecting your eyes starts with the food on your plate. Eating green leafy vegetables, eggs, nuts, salmon, oily fish, non-meat protein sources, oranges and other citrus fruits etc., these food provide nutrition to our eyes and brain.
There are also Yoga eye exercises which should be followed every day at least once to keep your eyes healthy and maintain good eye-sight.
