Blinknow is a new innovative, medication free solution to help prevent dry eye related symptoms (tiredness, eye strain etc) in computer and VDU users. The device encourages you to blink whilst working on your computer or VDU screen, promoting eye health and reducing symptoms of discomfort. Key points are:
The carefully thought through design, developed by eye specialists and IT professionals ensures that the blinknow!® device is easy to use, effective and will stimulate you passively without distracting you from the task on the computer.
Some of the symptoms of computer vision syndrome or screen fatigue are caused by decreased blinking while working long hours focusing on computer screens. Independent studies have shown that the blink reflex is reduced when doing computer work. The longer the eye remains open between blinks, the more likely the front surface of the eye (cornea) is to dehydrate. This leads to dry eyes, resulting in a feeling of tiredness and irritation in the eyes with inability to properly focus on near objects after a short duration.
A recent study cited in a European Eye Journal showed that a schematic visual representation of a blink presented to computer users can increase the blink rate of the individuals.
The blinknow device is a unique, innovative, medication free solution to help prevent dry eye related symptoms in computer and VDU users. The device encourages individuals to blink whilst working on their computer or VDU screen. The device is a visual display apparatus similar in size to a webcam. Once the device is switched on, it will show a blink. The blink will be repeated at regular intervals. It will remind the user to blink at a healthy rate thus overriding the blink suppression that can occur during prolonged computer work.
For maximum benefit the blinknow device must be used on a long term basis, regularly and continuously while working at the computer.
