Tips to Reduce the Strain on Your Eyes


The tips which you can follow to reduce the strain on your eyes.


1. Place a cool compress over your eyes and lie down and relax for a few minutes, especially if your eyes are feeling tired after working for long hours on the computer 

2. Keep your eyes moist. Use artificial tears if your eyes are excessively dry, but avoid eyedrops meant to be     used for another purpose. 

3. Blink frequently- it’s a good exercise for tired eyes. 

4. Wear sunglasses when out in the sun
