35. The 20-20-20 Rule!


I have had a tiny subconjunctival hemorrhage a week ago. Though it does not hurt or is not anything serious, I went for an eye check up today as I anyways was due for for my biannual eye exam. 

F.Y.I, as per Moran Eye Center of University of Utah Health care: People aged 20- 30 are advised to get biannual eye exam and those in their later thirties or above are advised to get annual eye exam unless there are any issues with their eyes.

As expected, my Ophthalmologist confirmed that there was nothing to worry with the hemorrhage in my eye and that it would fade away in about two weeks. Other than having a vision that is better than 20/20 (cause I could read teeny weeny sized letters), and slight astigmatism in my eye, my eyes are healthy and I was prescribed no glasses as usual. 

My Ophthalmologist suggested me the 20-20-20 rule to make sure I do not strain my eyes and give them the necessary time to relax. As Mayo clinic explains, 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take your eyes off your computer and look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
