Ugh, aren't eye twitches annoying? Experts share how to get relief.
If you're experiencing annoying eye twitching, experts offer tips on how to stop them including getting enough sleep and checking your computer workspace.
Check your computer workspace:You may find that a few minor changes in your surroundings can make a big difference in relieving eye strain, said Dr. Katsikos."The optimal viewing distance between your eyes and a computer monitor should be 20 to 28 inches, she said. If this isn't possible, you may need to adjust your screen's font size. You can also modify the angle of your screen to reduce eye strain. Our screen should be 15 to 20 degrees, or about four to five inches below eye level, from the center of the screen, she explained.
Wear blue light glasses:Dr. Katsikos explained,"Due to its short, high-energy wavelength, blue light creates a glare, which is one of the leading causes of eye strain. Prolonged exposure to blue light can cause retinal damage and result in age-related macular degeneration." She suggested wearing
to help alleviate digital eye strain by blocking the blue portion of the UV spectrum.Follow the 30-30-30 rule:Reducing screen time can help, Dr. Iskander suggests, but if that's not possible because of your job, take regularly scheduled screen breaks. Dr. Katsikos explained,"On average, a person blinks 33 percent less when looking at digital screens of any kind. So I always tell my patients about the '30-30-30 rule:" every 30 minutes, take 30 seconds to look 30 feet out into the distance. You'll naturally blink more than you would when looking at the screen, which gives your eyes a chance to rehydrate and relax."
If that doesn't help, Dreyer said to take even more frequent breaks, and follow the20-20-20 rule:"for every 20 minutes of screen time, focus on something at least 20 feet away, for at least 20 seconds. This will allow your eye muscles to move more normally and reduce strain," he said. He added that when you stare at a computer screen or anything close to your eyes for extended periods, you make your eyes focus on just one depth of vision rather than focusing on different points, which is a more normal activity for the eye."
Get relief for dry eyes:If allergies are causing dry eyes,as best you can. Sometimes it also helps to apply a warm compress or to use artificial tears to provide lubrication for your eyes, said Dr. Wong.Get your eyes checked: Read more: POPSUGAR Fitness »
