Between tablets, TV’s and smart phones, people today spend more time than ever looking at a screen. I’ve been blessed in that my eyesight has always been near perfect – until recently. I’d like to think it’s just my age, but I believe my screen time plays a big factor in why I need glasses now. Besides that, I am guilty of binge watching all the very popular TV series that are out.
Problem with shows like that is that you can’t just watch one – I can’t count how many times I’ve turned to my husband and said, “oh pleeasse! One more episode and then we’ll go to bed, promise!” After watching 5 back-to-back episodes of anything, a little bit of VISINE® helps relieve redness after binge-watching. Turns out I’m not the only one with dry itchy eyes after this type of activity. A survey that was taken among binge watchers discovered that 1 in 3 people experienced dry, irritated eyes from too much screen time. ¹
Fall is the time when all those TV seasons begin and we get hooked on a weekly dose of whatever you fancy – from reality TV to fantasy. VISINE® is a great little tool to keep nearby after an evening of exercising your eyes in front of a screen whether it be a tablet, TV or phone.
Eyesight is one of those things that is so easily taken for granted, yet so devastating to lose. When I think about the amount of time I spend using electronics, it really made me stop and take notice of my overall eye health and how important it is to maintain it. Not to say that VISINE® cures anything, but it’s nice to not have such dry, itchy eyes! Here’s some moments of me and my son binge watching his favorite animated movies back-to-back before my daughter was born – don’t mind my swollen pregnant feet!
Do you want to know how being a TV binge watcher can help a good cause? Use the hashtag #ScreenOn when tweeting about your favorite fall series and how VISINE® fits in. VISINE® will donate a dollar per tweet to AdoptAClassroom.org (minimum of $20,000 and up to $30,000) to help provide classrooms access to technology and screens.
Now there’s a great way to feel good about being a couch potato this fall!
