Protecting America’s Eyes” by Reticare in order to inform U.S. citizens about the importance of eye protection from device screens. The opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own.
DOES YOUR FAMILY SUFFER FROM EYE STRAIN?
Yes, we do! My kids have been complaining (I'm saying that in the nicest way too) about headaches and that their eyes hurt. My usual comment back is…get off the computer or your phone but then I'm treated with the eye roll or the roll of the head then the stomp back to their room, oh let's not forget the THAT'S NOT IT MOM is their comment back to me. Because of course, that is not it, Mom never knows anything.
I will admit I spend way too much time looking at a computer screen or my phone screen. It is amazing how my life has changed over the past ten years. My kids, though, this is all they know, and that is even sadder. Yes, they do go outside, and we do things as a family, but it is hard to unplug. As a parent, if I'm not a good example I need to help with the problem so what can I do….I can contribute to protecting their eyes! Like when they get hurt I help them so let me help them with their EYES!
WHAT CAN WE DO: Unplug or Get Reticare Eye Protectors!
We are not going to unplug! If we don't unplug, that means our eyes are working overtime for sure! Did you know the Vision Council’s 2016 Digital Eye Strain Report found that nearly 60% of Americans use digital devices for five hours or more each day, and 70% of Americans use two or more devices at a time? I have my phone right by me as I type up this post so yes I believe that number! I know I'm on my computer almost all day and into the night.
My husband will have to ask not to take the laptop to bed sometimes, but that is my job! But I guess…don't take my job into bed, I get the point. I will work on that. My kids are just like me, so I'm not showing them a good example either.
I didn't even know, but children have a much higher risk of damaging their eyes from overexposure to high-energy light because natural eye lens protection does not complete its development until age 25.I know my vision has changed a lot since being on the computer, so let's change this now by looking in Reticare and their products.
Eye Protectors you can get for kids and digital workers:
With over 14 years of research and backed by scientific data, Reticare’s eye protector screens can help our eye health by protecting the eyes from the harmful effects of high-energy light emitted through electronic devices we use every day. Retina damages which is the greater risk. Retina damage can onset Glaucoma, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration, which can lead to blindness. Once the retina cells die from being overexposed to high energy light, they don’t recover. So we must protect our eyes with Reticare to keep my family eyes healthy.
