What All Smartphone Users Should Know

It's official – we're totally dependent on smartphones. In truth, these devices are wonderful, because they let us stay in touch with whoever we want no matter where we are. Nevertheless many people have a habit of holding their handheld devices very close to their eyes. This kind of reading can be hard on your eyes.

It's a challenge for your eyes to focus on the small images and text you see on the small screens of smartphones. Over time, research shows this may cause problems with focus and vision, especially for those who already use vision correction, like glasses or lenses. Researches claim that when people who wear glasses spend a lot of time holding a device at a closer than normal distance, the eyes have an even harder time correcting for distance. This puts pressure on your eyes, and you end up with headaches or migraines, which aren't pleasant.

Additionally, a lot of time looking at your small screen can reduce your blink rate, and that can cause dry eyes and blurry vision.

What can we do keep our eyes strong, while still using our phones? In order to lessen eyestrain and blurred vision resulting from the use of our phones, it's best to use a larger font, and hold the screen further away from your eyes. It's also important to remember to frequently give yourself a break from staring at your phone. If you still experience headaches, you might need glasses to help you focus up close. You've only got one pair of eyes. Treat them well.
