Food That are Good for Computer Eyes

Eye Care

Nowadays, people spend more and more time in front of the computer. Dry eyes and sensitive eyes are only a part of the problem. In some cases, overstressing our eyes can cause blindness.

A young woman loves Korean Drama. However, she doesn’t have the time to watch it due to her busy schedule. And so she takes a 3-days-vaction, staying home just to do some catch up. Watching dramas on-line is really popular and convenient these days. But staring at a monitor 3 days in a row with little rest in between can be “costly”. Taking this woman as an example, she temporarily loses her sight.

I, myself is also a Korean Drama fan. I know how addictive it can be. A good K-Drama always ends each episode with an exciting cliffhanger. You want to continue on watching to find out what happens next, and before you know it, time flies by so swiftly. You forget about hunger or sleepiness. We often hear people saying, “I am staring at the monitor for too long, and I am blind.” Well, if you don’t take care of yourself first, blindness might be the reality rather than a figure of speech.

There are certain steps you may take to prevent the disaster from striking. First, relax your eyes often - looking out of the window every thirty minutes or so. Green is the color that may reduce the pressure of your eyes (by Green, I mean trees and meadows, not $). Second, adjust the light in the room - don’t make it too bright or too dark (some Laptop Desk has integrated LED light, perfect for personal light use.). Eat the right vegetables and fruits that contain high Vitamin A can also help maintain healthy eyesight. Below is a list of Fruits and Vegetables that the computer users should take on a regular basis.
