Eye Care Tips


  • Outdoor activities

  • Don't just stick around indoors. Studies have shown that staying outdoors to play can prevent onset of, and slow down, myopia progression

  • Take frequent eye breaks

  • Relax your eyes for 3 to 5 minutes after half an hour of close-range work or activity (e.g. homework, reading, usage of electronic device)

  • Light up adequately

  • Increase the illumination of your work space with a table lamp to reduce eye strain

  • Read from a distance

  • Keep your reading materials at least 35cm away from your eyes, 50-60cm away from the computer and 2 metres or further from television

  • Work desk ergonomics

  • Allow yourself to be comfortable while working at your desk area but be sure to maintain a good posture (good distance away from reading material, straight back)

  • UV protection

  • While outdoors, shield your eyes from excessive ultraviolet rays to prevent abnormal ocular changes. Most spectacles would have UV protection in their lenses

  • Protective eye wear

  • Choose suitable pair of glasses when playing contact sports to prevent injuries and trauma to eye

  • Regular eye checks

  • Schedule and stick to regular eye check-ups - even if you have a clean bill of health for your peepers previously
