Eyestrain treatment

Eyestrain treatment is very effective. In fact, it can usually minimise or even eliminate eyestrain all together.

Eyestrain treatment usually only requires changes to work or home-life habits, however sometimes underlying vision conditions may require more treatment.

That said, the treatment can be very effective. In fact, it can even permanently relieve eyestrain. Effective treatment is tailored for each patient. It teaches the skills to minimise eyestrain using simple techniques for use in the workplace, school or at home.

Exercise treatment for eyestrain

Eye exercises can effectively treat eyestrain. Indeed, the 20-20-20 exercise rule is one of the best exercises to prevent eye strain.

Every 20 minutes, stand up from your desk and look into the distance for 20 seconds while blinking 20 times.

This should become a habit over time and help protect your eyes from the ravages of office work.

Glasses as eyestrain treatment

Sometimes glasses are the best eyestrain treatment. However, an optometrist might only prescribe glasses for specific activities like reading or computer work. Although it has to be said, they can make those tasks a much more comfortable.

Sometimes a special filter coating is applied to the lenses. This reduces the amount of harmful blue light entering the eyes, which helps reduce eyestrain. Indeed, blue light coatings are recommended for anyone who wears glasses for digital device use.
