World Sight Day 2021
On World Sight Day 14th October, it’s time to LOVE YOUR EYES. This year's theme is all about being aware of your own eye health and if you are able to, get a sight test or recommend others do the same.
●There are simple things you can do yourself to prevent developing serious eye issues; take screen breaks, spend time outside, and get an eye test.
●The 20-20-20 rule helps your eyes relax when you’re looking at a screen for a long time. Every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to look 20 feet (6 meters) away.
●Spending two hours outside every day is great for your eyes and lowers the risk of becoming short-sighted.
●An eye test can identify eye conditions such as glaucoma before it has an effect on your sight. The earlier an eye condition is identified, the easier it is to treat.
