Excellent Vision For Half An Hour A Day!Excellent Vision For Half An Hour A Day!

The organs of human vision were formed over the centuries in the course of evolution. However, as it turned out, at the moment they are ill-adapted to the load that we are subjected to every day. As a result, more than 300 million inhabitants of our planet complain about problems associated with poor eyesight. One of the reasons for this is prolonged work at the computer, a long viewing of TV shows, improper diet, and many other factors. Good vision is necessary for a person for a comfortable and fulfilling life. Therefore try to follow our recommendations, for this, you will not need much time.


How to minimize the burden on the eyes?

How to keep your vision when watching TV

One of the main reasons for the development of eye diseases in humans is a long viewing of TV shows and serials. In order to maintain good vision, the following rules should be considered:

  1. The distance to the screen should be 5 times greater than its diagonal;
  2. When watching TV in the afternoon, you should pull up the curtains, and in the evening - turn on the dim light;
  3. let your eyes rest every half hour - to 5-minute breaks;
  4. watch TV no more than 3 hours a day.

Young children are not recommended to watch TV. From the age of 10, the child can be held in front of the television screen no more than 1 hour per day. If there are problems with vision, it is recommended to completely abandon this type of leisure.

Safe use of PC

Often the computer is used not only for work, with its help we also communicate with friends and relatives, we make purchases and organize our leisure. Accordingly, we spend a lot of time on it, forgetting at times that it is harmful. To maintain eye health and good eyesight, the following recommendations should be adhered to:

  • The distance from the computer screen to the eyes should be at least 30 cm;
  • the upper edge of the monitor should be 10 cm below eye level;
  • blink more often or apply moisturizing drops to the eyes;
  • if you wear glasses, wear them when working at a computer(ophthalmologists recommend separately to buy computer glasses); 
  • take 15-minute breaks every hour of work;
  • regularly remove dust from the surface of the monitor;
  • Do exercises for the eyes or a simple workout.

Oculists recommend spending at the computer for a maximum of 4 hours a day. If you have to work for him longer, install a program that will remind you about the gym for seeing at regular intervals (for example, every hour).

How to maintain your eyesight while reading

If you do not represent your day without a good book, remember that reading can cause increased strain on the organs of vision. To keep your eyes from getting tired, follow these guidelines:

  1. do not read in a lying position;
  2. keep the book at a distance of at least 30 cm from the eyes;
  3. the light on the open page should fall on top of the left side;
  4. do not read in poor light;
  5. Distract from the book every 60 minutes and take your eyes off into the distance for a few minutes.


The most useful sports for good vision are tennis and badminton. Thanks to them, the eye muscles are trained, as the gaze during the game constantly monitors the movements of the shuttle or the ball. Swimming is also effective because it helps maintain normal blood circulation in the cervical vertebrae, and preservation of vision without this is impossible.



Use high-quality lighting. When starting work at a computer or starting to read, pay attention to the location of the light source. If possible, sit with your back to the window or lamp. It is recommended to use diffuse light, which falls from the left side.

Take breaks. The school does not accidentally provide for changes. The organs of sight need rest, especially with hard work. Take for a rule every half an hour to interrupt for at least 5 minutes.

Protect your eyes from the sun. Most people mistakenly believe that ultraviolet is dangerous only in the summer. However, it is not. Protect eyes from sunlight throughout the year.

Compliance with these simple rules will allow you to see life 100%!
