Aware of the importance of having healthy and cared for eyes, Bañoftal, a specialist brand in eye wellness from Laboratorio Reva Health, has developed a guide to help maintain proper eye health.
The use of masks as a mandatory protection measure against Covid-19 has made the eyes the main protagonists not only of the face in the context of the new normal, but also of non-verbal communication. In this context, the Bañoftal Guide includes recommendations for good eye hygiene, eye relaxation exercises and curiosities about one of the most important and, at the same time, most delicate organs of the body.
And, as explained Francesc Roura, CEO of Reva Health , " the ocular hygiene is critical to the health of our eyes to keep them healthy care. In the current context, where the continued use of the mask as a protection measure against Covid-19 infections is necessary, maintaining a routine of care and cleaning of our eyes is essential to avoid a worsening of our eye health. Aware of this, from Bañoftal we have wanted to make this guide available to users as an informative and educational tool that can help us take care of our eyes ” .
Along with social distancing and hand hygiene, the use of masks has proven to be one of the most effective measures to stop the transmission of the virus. However, and despite being a necessary tool to protect our health, its use can cause discomfort to the eyes , since the continued use of the mask forces the air flow to go up when breathing, which accelerates the tear evaporation and increases eye dryness and irritation .
The Covid-19 pandemic has also made social relations evolve towards a dependence on technological devices and screens : teleworking with the computer, speaking with friends and family through mobile phones and increasing consumption of television and platforms video on demand. In fact, according to recent studies, since the beginning of the pandemic, Spaniards spend an average of around 11 hours a day in front of a screen and 86% of the population claims to have increased the use of these devices as a consequence of social isolation to stop the increased infections.
The prolonged use of the screens enhances vision at a short distance and with artificial light, which negatively affects our eyes. The consequences of this overexposure are already being noticed in the eye health of the population: 6 out of 10 Spaniards have stated they have vision problems due to the increase in the use of screens, with itchy eyes and dry eyes being the most frequent.
In addition, as a tribute to the sense of sight, the Bañoftal Guide invites you to take a look at the history of art to reflect on how the eyes have inspired painters, filmmakers, musicians and great celebrities for some of their most important creations. emblematic. Works like ' An Andalusian Dog ' by Luis Buñuel, ' Brown Eyed Girl ' by Van Morrison, or ' The Eye of Time ' by Salvador Dalí would not have the same relevance without their great protagonists: the eyes.
