Childrens eye health is very important


Greetings to all.


In this digitally-driven era, the abundance of gadgets has significantly increased screen time for all of us, and kids are no exception. Consequently, parents are compelled to regulate their children’s screen usage proactively.

May is observed as ‘Healthy Vision Month’, an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of eye health. 

Today, we are sharing tips to combat the impact of screen time on your kid’s vision.

Spending too much time on screens can be harmful for kids’ mental and physical health. as well. It can make it harder for them to sleep, be physically active or develop social skills".

Keep in touch with an expert to understand more ab out the kids’ eye health.

Tips to reduce kids’ screen time and promote healthy vision.


Make a set rule that your children may have no more than a designated time a day of screen time. More importantly, ensure consistency by enforcing the rule once it's made.

Things to look out for

While it may be hard to keep your children away from the screen, you can take cues around  screen time limits from Indian Academy of  Pediatrics recommendations. 

These include? 

For children under 2, no screen time,

For children 2 to 5, one hour per day under supervision,

 For older children and adults, not more than 2 hours per day,

Watching screens for a long time can make eyes dry, itchy, blurry vision, and cause headaches.


Designate bedrooms and dining areas as screen-free zones. Having meals together without a

screen encourages a conducive environment for family interaction and may help improve dietary patterns.

Putting away screens two hours before bedtime may decrease distractions and promote quality sleep in children.

Is too much screen time hampering your child’s sleep? 

Consider discussing with a  psychologist to explore solutions.


“Encourage outdoor play and other screen-free activities. Ensure designated time for physical activity or exercise every day. Take out some time to play with your kid, as playtime will help enhance your child's cognitive, language and social skills.


Designate a particular area that is far away so your child is not tempted to grab the electronic devices when bored. Replace these gadgets with newspapers, puzzles, comic books and board games nearby instead.


Your child tends to mimic whatever you do. When you're always on your phone, your child might think it's okay to always be on theirs, too. It also takes away from the time you could be spending together. Instead, limit your screen time and engage with them, acting as a role model for them to follow.

Things to Remember 

As your child ages, you'll need to figure out how much screen time is right for them and what's okay to watch. You may want to take care of the following things:

Use parental controls to manage internet content.

Keep a close eye on your child's screen activities and regularly inquire about the daily digital interactions.

When watching TV together, discuss the shows and ads to help your child distinguish fact from fiction.

Thank You
