Tips to prevent eyes from stress and other dangers
Smartphone technology had not evolved much till a few years back. However, today smartphone brands equip their devices with various display technologies that try to keep our eyes away from stress or other hazards. However, even then, excessive use is dangerous for the eyes in any case. In today’s time, smartphones of almost all brands come equipped with dark mode. It is a kind of dark theme, which changes the background of apps or any screen to black or dark gray. Due to this, your eyes will not get strained while using the smartphone or reading the text in low light or dark.
Blue light is also the biggest enemy for our eyes. Be it smartphone or laptop or TV, all displays emit blue light. Exposure to blue light causes a lot of strain in our eyes. Be it Android smartphones or iPhones, nowadays all OEMs provide blue light filters on their smartphones with different names (by the name of Night Shift in iPhones). Turning on this feature reduces the blue light emitted from the display and also reduces the strain on your eyes.
Excessive or low display brightness also works to put strain on our eyes. Yes, here we have used the word ‘less’. More brightness is dangerous for your eyes, as well as less brightness in a particular situation affects your eyes badly. The solution is the ‘auto brightness’ feature, which automatically adjusts the brightness of your phone according to the ambient light.
Dr. Sudhir Kumar’s have to say Blinking your eyes regularly (for more than one second) keeps your eyes moist and reduces stress. Make sure you blink 10 to 20 times every half an hour while using your phone. Blinking also helps your eyes refocus.
Make sure that the text size is large on your smartphone screen. Due to the very small size, the eyes have to take a lot of strain to read the text. You can easily change the text size by going to the settings of your smartphone.
There is also a 20/20/20 rule. This means that every 20 minutes you need to look at something at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. This can prove to be very helpful for protecting your eyes.
