Brits'spend 34 YEARS of their lives staring at screens', shock survey
Vision Direct, an online shop specializing in contact lenses and eye care products, commissioned a UK marketing research firm, OnePoll, to conduct a survey on the lifestyle of British people. The survey involved 2,000 British people aged 18-81 and replied what electronic devices they used and how much they used.
As a result, it turned out that the surveyed people use smartphones for 2 hours and 25 minutes a day on average. Similarly, PC was 4 hours 1 minute, TV was 3 hours 30 minutes, e-reader was 42 minutes, tablet was 1 hour 39 minutes, game was 1 hour 3 minutes.

Therefore, Vision Direct recommends to rest your eyes with the '20-20-20 rule' that 'every 20 minutes, look away from the screen for 20 seconds and look at a place that is at least 20 feet (about 6 meters)'. doing.
