EP62: Don’t be flexing like that! COVID-19 screen time with the National Eye Institute
May 24, 2021 Episode 62
Raquel Lamal

When you are focused on something, you’re not blinking much, and our eyes have a muscle inside that flexes when you’re looking up close at something. If you’re spending prolonged periods of time looking at a screen like many of us are right now, you’re flexing this muscle all the time without ever giving it a break. Exhausting!

We talk with Dr. Cousineau-Krieger from the National Eye Institute about the increase in eye strain and eye fatigue ophthalmologists have been noticing in the era of COVID-19 when avoiding screens is virtually impossible for many, pun intended.

Listen in for great tips like the 20:20:20 strategy to relax your flex muscle and give your eyes a much-needed break when limiting screen time is just not realistic.
