When it comes to working at a desk or infront of a laptop all day, the last thing you might be worrying about is your eyes. Nonetheless, without care and attention your lifestyle habit of continually sitting infront of the flat screen may cause damage to your eyes unknowingly.
After all, in a world where we're all glued to our screens for the majority of our day, it's important to make sure we don't strain or cause unnecessary damage to our eyeballs. Sight is one of the most important part of our five sense, lets not forget.
By using computers and screens a lot, our eyes are used the most... And sitting at your screen for hours may start creating lots of eye-relatd issues, like dry eyes, tearing, allergies and much more.
So if you are guilty of spending too much time infront of a TV or your tablet, or your daily routine requires you to be sat infront of a computer all day, here's some tips to make sure your peepers are protected...
1) Take a break
It's so simple! In between your work, take small breaks... Especially if you're working for long hours. By doing so you'll reduce the strain on your eyes and incrase the blood supply to your body.
2) Drink more water
Again, simple but very effective. By drinking more water, the puffiness in your eyes can be reduced.

3) Use the palming method
This technique is easy. All you have to do is rub your hands together until they're warm, and then cup your eyes for a little while. By doing this, it soothes your eyes and relaxes your elbows as well.
4) Look into the distance
Focus on objects in the distance between your working hours, and then coming back to normal near vision. This exercise will help your eyes to focus better.
5) Make sure you're eating right
Incorporate green vegetables, citrus fruits, tomatoes, spinach, dairy and foods rich in Vitamins A, E and C into your diet to keep your eyes healthy from the inside.
