How to reduce the use of smartphones and avoid vision problems?
In the same Twitter thread, Dr Kumar shared a few tips for people who spend too much time on their smartphones.
- Do not look at digital screens for too long to avoid severe and disabling vision-related symptoms.
- Follow the 20-20-20 rule while using digital screens. It means taking a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away from you every 20 minutes.
So, the best way to avoid developing vision problems such as these is to limit the use of smartphones. You should also set a time limit for use, especially for children, to help reduce ocular and visual problems.
