Tired Eyes – level 1

06-05-2020 15:00

The coronavirus is in many countries. People must stay in their homes. They spend a lot of time in front of their TV or computer. It is not good for the eyes.

Experts say that our eyes can get tired. We do not blink so often when we stare at a screen. Our eyes get dry and red. We cannot see well. We have headaches.

It is good to follow a 20-20-20 rule. When we look at a screen for 20 minutes, we should look away for 20 seconds. It is good to look at something 20 feet away. Then our eyes can relax. Reading glasses can also help. Eye drops help tired eyes, too.

Difficult words: blink (to close and open the eyes quickly), stare (when we look at something for a long time, and our eyes do not move), eye drops (medicine that people put in their eyes).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
