New Year’s Resolution for your Eyes

New Year’s Resolution for your Eyes

2021 is here (finally). After the roller coaster of the previous year, fingers are crossed for a fresh start.

You must have already listed down your resolutions for this year and promised yourself that this time you’ll follow through – no excuses whatsoever.

We’re sure your list has everything, from weight loss to travel plans and we sincerely hope you check all the boxes by the end.

But does anyone think about their eyes when making a resolution?

Not many do!

Why not? Your eyes deserve the same amount of attention you give to your weight and the health of your body.

So if your resolution is to improve your general health, then why not start with your eyes and eyesight?

We all know that we stick to resolutions better if we plan a series of smaller goals. To make things easier for you, we have made this list you can follow to pamper your eyes and view the world better (no pun intended).

Book an eye examination

We know this sound like a lot of work, but it isn’t. It’s a simple task that won’t take much of your time but could prove extremely beneficial in the long run.

A simple but comprehensive (and painless) consultation can detect tiny changes that could cause potential future problems and advise you on how to get the best from your vision, or equally reassure you that everything is just fine as it is. Based on the findings you can figure out what changes you need to make to improve your eye health.

And if you routinely use a computer screen during work or otherwise, you must definitely consider an eye check-up.


Change your style

It’s likely that you have fallen out of love with your current glasses and don’t think they represent your personal style any more. Or that your sunglasses complement some of your favourite outfits but don’t work well with others.

So why not make this part of your resolution?

You can resolve to update them and find shades that transform your look and make you happier.

If aviators were your go-to style, embrace a new flavour with Round frames. If you’re aiming for a bold look, achieve it by a captivating pair of Cateyes. Visit here to browse the latest collection and pick a pair that reshapes your fashion quotient.


Wear Sunglasses regularly

We often think sunglasses are just for summers just like how sweaters are for winters and umbrellas for rains. But that’s not entirely true. From the first day of the year to the last, your eyes need protection from harmful UV rays that are always present in the atmosphere irrespective of the climate.

The dangerous effects of UV rays are pretty well-known but it’s always overlooked. With the deteriorating ozone layer and climate change, it’s only going to get worse. So it’s better not to take the safety of your eyes for granted and start wearing sunglasses regularly.

By including sunglasses in your daily travel routine, you can also prevent any damage to your eyelids and formation of premature wrinkles. This year, make your sunglasses a part of your skincare as well.


Cut down screen time

The next resolution you can make to take care of your eyesight is to get away from digital screens (as much as you can). We know your work involves computer screens and you have to keep yourself entertained with the latest series. But this overexposure to digital screens is a serious threat to your eyes and often leads to dryness and stinging sensation in the eyes, blurry vision, headache and even insomnia.

This ailment is phrased as Computer Vision Syndrome or Digital Eye Strain which can leave you battling with many problems, even long-term ones that you may not notice immediately.

But since completely getting away from the screens is impossible. So what you can do is start small, only then can you fulfil this resolution. Start monitoring your screen time and take short breaks whenever you can where you’re not facing a digital screen – take a 20-second break every 20 minutes.

If even that seems unattainable due to various reasons, you can simply grab a pair of high-quality anti-blue computer glasses that block the harmful blue lights from the digital devices.

Make sure you pick the right one. You can check out our collection of anti-blue computer glasses that block 100% of blue light from here.

 There you go. With these resolutions, you’ll not only have a healthier vision but also a healthier outlook on life.
