Sunglasses vary in quality enormously, with some sunglasses providing only a small amount of UV protection. At Eyecatch we only provide sunglasses which rate equal or above the Australian minimum Sunglass Standards for UV protection – Category 1 and 2. If you wear prescription glasses, please remember that most sunglasses can be fitted with prescription lenses and they’re 100% UV protected, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for perfect vision.
Blink frequently, as it helps you avoid dry eyes and irritation Order anti-reflective coating on your glasses to minimise glare Avoid lighting that’s in your direct line of sight or reflects off the screen Place any reference or reading material at the same distance as your screen so your eyes don’t have to readjust.
It’s worth giving your eyes some gentle exercise too. Routine 1 – High, Low: Keeping your back and neck straight, and your head still, look as high as possible, then look down. Repeat this 10 times, then close and rest your eyes for about 30 seconds Routine 2 – Left, Right: Keeping your eyes wide open, look as far to the right as possible, then to the left. Again, repeat 10 times, then close and rest your eyes for 30 seconds.
