If you’ve known me earlier, you would have heard of my eye-infection story back in 2013. (Read post: http://simplyjas.com/blog/2011/07/fiftytwo-days-walking-by-faith-and-not-by-sight-my-true-life-testimony/) That was a period when I was afraid that I will lose my vision due to the inappropriate handling of my contact lenses. Since then, I’ve been extra careful in handling my contact lenses, how I take care of my eyes as I do not wish history to repeat itself again. *healthy eyes* It is enough to go through once, experiencing the emotional turmoil of going to the eye specialist, waking up every hour for the eye drop, monitoring the process of the cornea etc. So whenever people wear their contact lenses for long hours, I will always advise them to take it out to allow your eyes to “breathe”.
As working adult, I can say that I spend 12 hours staring at electronic devices – smartphones, work laptops. This isn’t helping my eyes or my skin as the computer rays not only harm my eyes, but also my skin.

You often hear from people that “Your eyes show the strength of your soul.” Since young, your parents have been nagging you about how you should take good care of your eyes. When I was young, I was very afraid to visit the optician. This is because the optician will evaluate my eyesight and advise my mum whether I should change my glasses lenses. When I need to change my glasses, my mum will give me that kind of deadly stare.

What are some eyecare myths that needed to be debunked?
The study conducted at Advance Eye Hospital and Institute, Navi Mumbai by Dr Vandana Jain, says that the rising incidences of eye conditions in children could be on the rise due to increased use of laptops,
If you were told to surrender your computer and smart phone for a day, what will be your reaction? Will you panic because these gadgets have become part of your life that you can’t live without? We spend on an average 10-12 hours a day in front of our PC/ smart phones due to work, leisure etc. Do you know the adverse effects of computer rays on your skin? Can you imagine the extent to which these computer rays are adversely affecting our skin?
In the past, I do not really care much about UV rays, let alone how computer rays and radiation can affect our skin. Ever since I join the beauty industry two years back, my colleagues have been sharing with me beauty tips, anti-aging tips. Due to the nature of my work, I read online articles, beauty magazines and health reports and realised how important it is to at least apply sunscreen on my face before stepping out of the house. But I did not know the harmful effects of the computer rays to my face.
