Holistic Best Practices for Maintaining Children’s Eye Health

sponsored content

December 15, 2021

Over the last year and a half, many parents have expressed concern over the increase in their children’s screen time. The COVID-19 pandemic prompted virtual schooling and a lot of indoor time, both of which have made children more prone to sit in front of tablets, laptops, and cell phones. How does all of this screen time impact their long-term eye health?

In this podcast episode, sponsored by EssilorLuxottica, Millicent Knight, OD, CHC, FAAO, FAARM, FNAP, Senior Vice President, Customer Development Group, sat down with Shalu Pal, OD, FAAO, FSLS, FBCLA, Ann Hoscheit, OD, CHC, FAAO, FAARM, and Laurie Capogna, OD, author of Eye-Foods: A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes, to discuss visual hygiene habits and overall best practices for how children can keep their eyes healthy long term. The conversation includes information on nutrition, environment, and lifestyle, and the experts all agree when it comes to screen time: more time outdoors and less time in front of screens is likely to yield the best visual health results.
