Think Blink! Eye Exercises to Prevent Dry Eyes

Did you know that the average American spends 10 hours per day looking at a screen? Unfortunately, the brightness of a computer, smartphone or tablet screen can result in reduced blink rates of 60-80%. Less blinking can lead to dry eye symptoms. If you have found yourself suffering from dry, irritated, or red eyes then you may be suffering from dry eye.

Don’t fret! There’s a simple set of eye exercises you can perform each day to combat the eye-parching effects of our digital devices.
