Dr. Beth’s Screen Time Tips

Between Virtual School, Facetime with family and friends, and (yes) the occasional video game, screen time is off the charts right now in our house. Maybe yours, too. To help, Dr. Beth made this 1-minute video to remind people about visual hygiene, a fancy word that means “keeping your eyes from getting tired.”

Dr. Beth’s top 4 recommendations for comfortable screen time.

  • Remember the 20/20/20 Rule. Every 20 minutes look 20 feet away for 20 seconds to relax the eyes.
  • Smaller screens cause more eyestrain than larger screens, so use the TV instead of phones or tablets when you can.
  • Remember Elbow Distance, the distance from our first to the elbow.
  • Use reading or close work glasses if they have been prescribed for you.

If you have any questions, let us know. If you or your children have symptoms such as blurry vision, headaches, or double vision, definitely let us know.

Eye Yoga as Taught by Paul McCartney

Remember this post on Eye Yoga? I put it on the blog, because I think that it is so important that I start every therapy session with a brief session of Eye Yoga.It is a great way to get the eyes ready to move and focus while developing awareness of what they do.

Well, it turns out that my favorite Beatle, Paul McCartney, also believes that Eye Yoga is a good idea. He learned it in India. His version is slightly different than mine, but I think I’ll start incorporating the circles into mine as well.

Here is a video of Paul teaching Eye Yoga:
