HOW TO AVOID CONJUNCTIVITIS?

Fluorescent light should always be avoided as much as possible. This type of light produces a continuous vibration which can irritate your eyes.
Stop reading occasionally to let your eyes rest

Close them during a couple of seconds and open them widely. Repeat this several times.
Maintain a proper diet
Leave your vision rest
When working on a computer screen, try to rest from time to time, doing eye exercises focusing near-far. Do not force your vision trying to read a too small text.
Do not read on the move
For example, do not read when traveling. The head position should be adequate, looked straight ahead. Never read or watch a screen from one side.
Perform outdoor walks so that the eyes can come into contact with sunlight
