The NCAA Tournament is in full swing. Is your bracket busted? Some of the top teams have been toppled and it seems like anything can happen. The drama of the tournament has taken a toll on many college basketball fans. And, probably on their eyes as well.
Roughly 70 million brackets are filled out each year according to the American Gambling Association. Largely done on computer screens and smartphones. Add in all the futile research that fans put into achieving a perfect bracket and we are talking about a lot of screen time.
Abundant screen time can lead to dry eyes. Why? Studies show that people just blink less when looking at screens.
When eyes blink the functions that keep eyes moist go to work. Each time we blink healthy Meibomian Glands release an oily substance on the eye surface that prevents evaporation. It’s incredibly important for eye health and comfort. (Read our post The Incredible Reason Why Your Eyes Feel Dry to learn more.)
It’s not just the March Madness screen time that can lead to eye discomfort. March Weather Madness is in full effect as well: record highs, record lows and some record snowstorms. Cold weather, especially, can lead to dry eyes. The combination of dry air, dehydration and indoor heating all contribute to eye dryness. (Read our post The Top 5 Reasons Eyes Feel Dry in Winter. )
If you head out in cold weather to watch a game with friends take stock of your eyes. Going from indoor heating to cold outdoor weather can lead to teary eye. When eyes feel more watery it’s often because they are trying to produce extra tears to combat eye dryness. The problem is the composition of these tears is lacking and unable to maintain eye lubrication and comfort.
Give your eyes a break. Consider giving them some love and care and maybe you will be able to watch the Championship Final irritation free.
