Blink. Blink again. And again.
Blinking is what spreads valuable tears over the surface of the eye. As you’re reading this off a screen, your blink rate is half what it would be if you were walking around.
Yes, half. 50% less.
It’s an incredible difference, and explains why prolonged work on a computer can lead to sore, tired eyes and eye strain.
