March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month

 

The reported number of emergency room visits from a work related eye injury is nearly 25,000 annually. March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month (www.aao.org). The physicians at Retina Associates encourage you to wear certified and approved protective eyewear in your work environment.

As we observe Workplace Eye Wellness month, we would like to share the 20/20/20 Rule: Preventing Digital Eye Strain. This rule is designed to prevent eye strain from staring at a computer or smartphone. What does the 20/20/20 Rule mean? For every 20 minutes of viewing your digital screen, you should look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This allows your eyes to rest and keeps them healthy.

Retina Associates of Kentucky offers retinal care to patients through Kentucky. You may call our office at 1-800-627-2020 to schedule an appointment at any of our 10 locations.
