The act of blinking is underrated and does not get the social awareness it deserves. We at Omega Opticians emphasize on the need to
understand the importance of frequent blinking as it can enhance the health of our eyes and maintain the ideal visual well-being.
What impact does this noble exercise have on our eyes?
First, blink for lubrication. This means for every time you blink, your eyelids spread a protective tear film-over the surface of your eyes. This keeps your eyes lubricated thus preventing dryness and discomfort.
Blink for vision clarity. Blinking allows your eyes to re-hydrate, ensuring maximum clarity of vision.
This helps to maintain a clear focus by minimizing eye strain, especially during activities that need prolonged
staring, like reading or using digital devices.
Prolonged visual tasks can cause eye fatigue, therefore blinking will help to refresh and relax your eyes.
Blinking also helps to clear away dust, debris and other irritants. This acts like a mini cleansing
mechanism that maintains clean and healthy eyes. Blinking provides brief relaxation for your eyes,
relieving tension and promoting a sense of comfort.
Remember, tears contain special enzymes that help fight off harmful bacteria, thereby reducing the risk of
eye infections. Tears also act as a signal thus conveying our emotions to others for easier social
Therefore, let us all embrace the power of blinking and keep our eyes refreshed, protected, and ready to
tackle the world!
