Research shows outdoor activities are good for your eyes
March 26, 2018
We all know exercise is good for our bodies and minds, but did you know simply getting outside exercises your eyes and improves your overall eye health, too? That’s right. Studies suggest increased use of computers and other screens limit our visual focus. In contrast, when you’re outdoors, you’re focusing on objects at many ranges and giving your eyes a workout in the process.
In fact, researchers are predicting half the world will be nearsighted by 2050 thanks to all the screen time logged indoors. Research shows artificial light triggers nearsightedness, and increased exposure to artificial light negatively impacts our eyes.
