The eyes are exposed to many external agents every day, such as sunlight or light from the screens. This exposure, without the appropriate measures, can affect visual health. It has been shown that working with screens for hours causes symptoms such as dryness, blurred vision, or irritation. On the other hand, exposure to UV rays, especially in summer, can damage eye tissues such as the cornea or the macula, and cause different diseases in the long term.

For protection against solar radiation and the LED light of the screens, there are recommendations such as wearing sunglasses, rest your eyes every so often ... however, which glasses are appropriate? What is the correct way to rest your eyes if you have been looking at the screen for a long time? Did you know that it is also dangerous to look at reflective surfaces such as water, snow, or sand?
