With more online learning, parents working from home while managing childcare and the general situation at the moment, many kids are using screens more than normal. 

A pediatric optometrist with Texas Children's Hospital shares some thoughts on how to protect your children's vision while using screens. She suggests implementing the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes look 20 feet in the distance for at least 20 seconds. This helps to break the "stare" that so many of us fall into when using screens and helps with dry eyes as well.
