You must have complained to yourself about how you have not been taking care of your eyes. Those long online meetings, late-night deadline submissions, assignments, presentations, online classes, and with this comes the complications of eyes. We know it is affecting our eyes.
With increasing screen time due to the usage of laptops and mobiles, every one of us has been spoiling our eyes. You can start to develop blurred vision at an early age, you can get dry eyes with headaches, and also develop migraines. There is difficulty in sleeping, especially for children. This is also called Computer vision syndrome.
Two questions for you:
1) What are you doing about the health of your eyes?
2) When was the last time you checked your eyes due to growing screen time or just even a general check-up to know how weak your eyes have gotten?
We bet some of you rarely have.
One has to be cautious. It is difficult to control the screen time due to the growing work commitments and our children’s online education, but we can mitigate the effect of screen time by a regular check-up and using quality optical wear.
We avoid wearing Optical wear or Prescription glasses. We don’t go for eye-check up because we fear that we will have to wear glasses. We feel insecure that we will be judged. Not many are even aware if they have eye issues or not.
The other very important reason for avoiding prescription glasses is not having a variety of choices of styles of frames. We rarely take Prescription glasses as part of our wardrobe.
With this very purpose, NetraKart is established to help you take care of your eyes. It is Nepal’s first eyewear e-commerce platform which has a variety of Optical wear, Prescription glasses, contact lenses, sunglasses. In pursuit of its goal, it has collaborated with Vision Concern, Nepal’s first ISO certified eye clinic, which has been in this eye service industry for over 12 years. It has
3 retail stores running in Kathmandu, helping us create an omnichannel model for better consumer engagement.
