Five Tips For Avoiding Vision Damage From Using Your Smartphone

by Ross Martin

Every day that you use your smartphone, it's drastically affecting your vision whether you realize it or not. Some of your personal use habits may also inadvertently be making the danger to your vision worse. To help ensure that your smartphone is not damaging your eyesight, you should consider these five tips:

  1. Set Some Limits: Whenever you don't have to use your smartphone, don't. You can even set limits on your smartphone with certain apps that will basically track how often you are opening your phone throughout the day. This way, you can apply that information to help yourself become more conscious about your usage. 
  2. Don't Use the Phone for More Than 20 Minutes: Whether you are watching a movie, surfing the internet, or checking social media, you shouldn't be using your smartphone for more than 20 minutes at a time. This doesn't mean that you can't continue using your smartphone for these purposes, but you should at least get up every 20 minutes and do something else like stretch or use the bathroom just to give your eyes a small break. 
  3. Don't Forget to Blink: When we are starting at a fixed screen, it's easy to minimize the amount of blinking we are doing. for this reason, it's really important that you are aware of how often you blink when using your phone. This is going to prevent your eyes from becoming dry and irritated. 
  4. Use the Phone in a Lit Room: Instead of the phone being the only source of light in the room, it's better to have a lamp on so that the phone's bright screen isn't so irritating. In fact, it's better to have a light that's pointing towards the smartphone to help your eyes relax more. 
  5. Turn the Brightness Down: When you are in a darker room, it's better to turn the brightness down as low as you can on your phone to prevent eye irritation. In fact, you can use night mode on most smartphones which will change the screen brightness and coloring so that it's better for your eyes. 

When you consider these five tips, you will automatically be taking better care of your eyes without having to alter your lifestyle much. Just be sure that you get regular eye exams and make conscious choices when it comes to using your smartphone on a daily basis. Consider further tips from your eye doctor, as well.

About Jessica's Cosmetic Surgeries

Hello there! I'm Jessica Goodyear. I am an unofficial expert on cosmetic procedures--mostly because I've had a lot of them done. Some people judge me or think I'm fake, but I feel more like myself than I ever have before! It all started when I was a teenager. I broke my nose playing softball, and I had to have plastic surgery on my nose so that I could breathe properly. But my nose looked different afterwards, and I liked it better! Now I save up my money to get something done every few years. Whether it's teeth whitening or veneers, a little bit of liposuction, or new cheekbones, there's something so satisfying about letting your inner beauty shine out through your outer body. I started this site to help break the stereotypes about cosmetic surgeries and to talk about some of the health risks related to them. Check it out!
