Slave that we have become to our smartphones and laptops our eyes remain transfixed at the screen almost all the time that we are awake. Blinking once came naturally to us but now we fail to do it as our gaze is fixed on out pixilated screens. In the bargain we are doing our orbs a great deal of damage. On an average a person should ideally blink 15 to 20 times in a minute. But overuse and misuse of smartphones and laptops make us transfixed to the screen reducing the blinking rate to just four or five per minute.
