Spending a significant portion of the day staring at smartphone or computer screens can cause a decline in vision in the 40s.
The lenses in the eyes adjust focus depending on the proximity of objects you're looking at. If the lens fails to adjust, vision deteriorates, and the eyes can become dry or tear up.
The way to prevent that is to give the eyes a break from staring at a computer screen that is perpetually at the same distance.
Blinking often while using a smartphone or computer and staring at distant objects for 10 to 20 minutes helps the eyes rest. Closing them tightly, opening them wide and swiveling them can also be beneficial.
Avoid excessively bright lights and smoking, and drink lots of water to protect your vision.
