Prepare your visual well-being before the start of the school year

It's never too late to go to the ophthalmologist to check if you need prescription glasses or simple glasses . Visual well-being depends on it. Whether you already wear glasses or the need arises, the ophthalmologist will make an adequate assessment and decide whether to make a correction.

Adopt anti-blue light computer glasses for your visual comfort

Anti-blue light glasses help relieve the eyes when they are exposed to natural or artificial light sources. Your main work tool being the computer, it emits a tiring light source for your eyes (blue light) and can be a factor in the progressive deterioration of your eyesight.
Resting glasses in front of screens or when working with classic tools such as manuals can prevent or radically slow down this deterioration. It also helps to avoid headaches, common among students. Eyeglasses are the best allies for students who want to pass their exams, good eyesight promoting concentration and learning.

Get away from screens before the start of the school year

Computer screens and particularly those of smartphones are becoming miniaturized. Students complaining of visual fatigue are more and more numerous and the number of myopes increases with near vision always more solicited. In order to avoid vision problems when you come back to school, give yourself one or two days off a week away from screens. Don't stare at your screen for hours, take breaks every hour.

Remember to moisten your eyes

Facing the screens, during work that requires a lot of attention, students often forget to blink or blink much less with all the consequences that can result from this, such as dry eyes, visual discomfort or even the feeling of having bad vision.
Remember to blink enough to moisten them. Ocular surfaces that have a larger diameter are sometimes less easy to moisten than surfaces with a smaller diameter, even with enough blinking. In this case, you can obtain artificial tears by consulting your ophthalmologist beforehand or simply physiological saline.

Adapt your lighting and equipment

The lighting in the room must be of the same intensity as that of the screen. It is best to arrange your work desk perpendicular to the window. Avoid working in the dark. Opt for an anti-glare screen. Your office chair must be high enough to preserve the neck.
