As we bid farewell to the festivities of Christmas and the excitement of the New Year, it is crucial to reflect on the well-being of our eyes, especially considering the unique challenges that arise during this season.
Post-Holiday Eye Care:
Extended screen time, lack of sleep, and indulging in festive activities can take a toll on our eyes. It is not uncommon to experience eye strain, fatigue, or dryness after the holiday hustle. To kickstart a healthy 2024, let's prioritize our vision.
Combat Dry Eyes in Harmattan:
As we transition into the dry harmattan season in Nigeria, it is essential to be proactive in preventing dry eyes. The combination of festive celebrations, prolonged screen use, and the dry atmosphere can exacerbate symptoms. Stay hydrated, use artificial tears, and consider using a humidifier to maintain optimal moisture levels.
