The Importance Of Blinking

The simple act of blinking flushes fresh tears over the eye which keeps foreign matter and irritant out. Blinking also helps re-moisturise your eyes and to deliver nutrients to the important structures within your eye.

Did you know that blinking can be helpful for your vision?

Almost all of us spend a large portion of our day using screen devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones and the television. Excessively staring at screens is exacerbating dry eye and ocular discomfort.

More than 2 million Australians suffer from dry eyes, and more than 30% of Australians suffer from eye allergies at least once during their lifetime

How To Blink: the 20/20/20 rule

We recommend following the 20/20/20 rule:

Every 20 minutes, close your eyelids shut & then squeeze lightly for two seconds. Open your eyes, then look 20 feet across the room for 20 seconds.

This blinking action activates your distance vision & rests your eyes! Take time to look out a window or simply close your eyes.
