March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month πŸ‘€ check out these tips for how you can protect your eyes from irritating dry eye symptoms:

🍞 If you work in a bakery or food prep environment, airborne particles may irritate your eyes. Employers should also consider investing in proper ...ventilation systems to reduce airborne contaminants. Warm compresses or washing eyes with baby shampoo twice daily may also help alleviate dry eye symptoms caused by airborne particles.
πŸ’§Stay hydrated throughout your workday. Maintaining proper hydration may help the body produce adequate tears to keep the eyes moisturized and avoid dry eye symptoms.
🌬️ Aim any vents blowing onto your face directly in the car or next to your desk away from you. You could add a humidifier and air purifier to your home and office.
πŸ’» 20-20-20 rule: 20 minutes of screen time, reading, or work, a 20-second break to blink, and looking at least 20 feet away.

Ever wonder what Radiofrequency (RF) treatment for dry eyes looks like or how it works? Radiofrequency (RF) is a new treatment that can relieve dry eyes. This new treatment works by using uniform heat at a safe temperature to unblock Meibomian glands (which are in and around the eyelids). After ...treatment, your care provider at #RoyalOakOptometry at #RoyalOakPlaza in #SaanichBC will express your meibomian glands to unblock them and promote healthier oils in your tears. An added benefit of RF treatment is that it increases collagen production, naturally slowing down with age. By increasing collagen growth, RF can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
