The 20/20/20 ruleFollowing the 20-20-20 rule addresses a lot of these computer-induced eye problems. For every 20 minutes that you look at a screen, stop for 20 seconds, and look 20 feet into the distance. It takes the pressure off the fovea, engages the rest of your vision, and picks that blink rate back up. If you need a routine eye exam, then see an optometrist or ophthalmologist. If you need laser eye surgery or surgery, then see an ophthalmologist. #computerstrain #computerstraining #newmexico ... See MoreSee Less

Have a wonderful weekend! Make sure and wear safety glasses if you’re working around the house. Seasonal allergies are also super bothersome along with the smoke from the devastating fires. Artificial tears chilled (Systane or Refresh) can be helpful and over the counter allergy drops like Pataday once a day helps. If you need something stronger, then visit your optometrist or ophthalmologist. If you need laser eye surgery, then contact your ophthalmologist. www.nmao.org #newmexicotrue #newmexico #newmexico #albuquerque #seasonalallergies #pataday #pRefreshDrops #SystaneComplete ...
