Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?
A: Remember to blink! Normally you blink about 15 times per minute. When you are working on a computer your blink rate can drop to 3 times per minute. Follow the 20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes take a 20 second break and look across the room to relax your eyes, and blink. Stay hydrated and take 1000 mg of fish oil each day.
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults between the ages of 20 and 74. Between the years 2005 and 2008, 4.2 million diabetes patients in the United States developed a serious diabetes-related eye condition called diabetic retinopathy.
