Keeping your eyes healthy | A routine

  • Keep your eyes safe from the sun light

If left unchecked, the sun’s UV-A and UV-B light rays can reach and damage your retina, increasing the risk of developing a number of eye diseases. 


Don’t stress though, at Mahdi Opticals we offer a solution for this and we’ve got you covered. Sunglasses are the most efficient protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation. Our lenses, labeled UV400, offer the highest level of protection against UV rays. You can also opt for photochromic lens coating which is another affordable option.

  • Reduce your screen time (yes, it’s not just for kids)

The honest truth is that Blue light radiation is everywhere. It is emitted by the sun, modern light sources and screens. This light causes symptoms such as dry eyes, blurry vision and disrupted sleep.


Luckily for you, we have a long lasting solution for both kids and adults.


If you find yourself gazing at screens all day and your eyes feel overworked, try the 20-20-20 routine. It’s actually quite simple: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for about 20 seconds. This gives your eyes time to relax and prevents strain.


You can also wear protective screen eye glasses such as our Blue Light glasses. These will help your eyes feel more focused and comfortable during a long day in front of your laptop. You can add it to any of our optical frames!
