during Teen years
Vision problems during teenage years are common.
Our tips below will help to prevent the onset of some of these problems.
Like SPF in sunscreen, the higher the factor, the greater the UV protection. Also, teens with busy lives may neglect to eat regularly and properly. Yet a balanced diet is vital to the health of the eyes.
Technology - Teenagers love their gadgets. However, overuse of digital devices can be harmful to the eyes, as they emit blue-violet light, which can damage eyes over time. Overuse can also lead to a range of symptoms known as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). To reduce the risks, limit screen time, and use the 20-20-20 rule: pause for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, to look at something 20 feet away.
Self image - Vision problems can begin during teenage years. But self-conscious teens may be reluctant to put on a pair of glasses for the first time. It is imperative that their sight does not go uncorrected.
