Minus Eye Prevention?
Morning.nI have a question.nWhen I was tested for color blindness yesterday, my eyes were checked to see if they were minus or not. And it turns out that my left eye is -0.5. But I use my laptop a lot in studying. Can I use non-sized glasses in order to reduce the level of radiation entering the eye?
Hello, Rian Iryansyah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Myopia is a condition in which a person's ability to see far is reduced (nearsightedness). Myopia is caused by a refractive error in the eye. Myopia is often passed down (in families) and can worsen with age. Myopia can interfere with a person's quality of life, so a person with myopia should wear glasses or contact lenses according to the minus size, or use LASIK therapy. You can consult about your minus eye therapy at an ophthalmologist.
Laptops or gadgets do have blue light radiation which is believed to cause eye damage. However, there is no research that can prove that gadget radiation can cause eye disease. Even so, the use of computer-specific anti-radiation glasses is said to prevent eye damage.
The use of gadgets or laptops can interfere with eye health due to tired and dry eyes caused by eyes that rarely blink and focus excessively on the gadget screen. Tired and dry eyes can cause the eyes to feel hot, itchy, watery, tense, have a headache, and feel blurry. To prevent this, you should every 20 minutes staring at the gadget screen, rest your eyes for 20 seconds by looking as far as 6 meters.
Here are some things you can do to maintain eye health:
1. Eat nutritious foods, such as green vegetables, oranges, nuts, salmon, tuna
3. Avoid smoking
4. Wear sunglasses to avoid UV radiation from the sun
5. Diligent in exercising
6. Keep clean
7. Sleep enough
That's it, I hope it's useful.
