Take your eyes out for a walk

I work a lot behind the computer and so after a maximum of two hours I go for a short walk. The reason is that the human eye evolved over millions of years to be good at seeing the objects of nature with their chaotic shapes and beautiful greens (our eyes are most sensitive in those frequencies). However, we live in a world of geometrical patterns and the unnatural light of computer screens and indoor lighting.

I do believe in the “green” more efficient fluorescent lights, but they produce the worst possible light. It would not take much to convert the flicker frequency to say 600 rather than the 60 here in he USA and 50 in most of the rest of the world. Given the cheapness of electronic chips it could be done easily and then we could have green light which is good for us rather than the current lights which give eye strain and possibly headaches to some.

So anyway, going outside for a short walk, in a place you can see trees or hills, the oceon or other natural objects, allows our eyes to rest and in the meanwhile it’s god exercise as well.
