Most people spend time in front of computers nowadays.
And when one isn’t in front of the computer, likely as not you’ll find yourself in front of the TV instead. These activities put a great amount of stress on the eyes and you’re doing them every day!
It’s no wonder then that vision problems can soon occur like headaches, dry eyes, redness, and even blurred vision. While ensuring enough sleep overnight and taking periodic rests will help, you can supplement these efforts with some easy exercises to soothe and rejuvenate your eyes.
Best of all, they’re so simple that they take practically no time at all.
