Healthy Options 7/1/20: Screen Dependency and Saving Our Vision

Host/Producer: Rhonda Feiman
Co-producer: Petra Hall

The focus of this program is on the importance of eye health, and how we can practice good hygiene- for our eyes- especially at a time of increased usage of computers, smart phones, and all that demands our visual attention.

How do we maintain good vision?
Are we only considering eye hygiene for using screen devices?
How does eye health relate to body health, overall?
What are specific relaxation techniques we can use to maintain eye health? Do these techniques help us in other ways?
How does stress reduction benefit our eyes and vision?
What is palming and how do we do it?
How often should we blink? How often should we look away from the screen, and for how long?
