Canadians spend a lot of time looking at screens: Computer, phone, gaming and television.
According to Statistics Canada in a survey completed in 2020, Canadians have dramatically increased their time on screens because of the COVID-19 pandemic:
• 68% more time on internet
• 63% more time watching TV
• 22% more time playing video games
Screens Off for Sight means giving your eyes a break from screens. It can be a helpful rest for your eyes too. On March 20 at 6 a.m., join the challenge and turn off your screens for 24 hours.
Challenge yourself and others to find things to do OFF your screen and raise funds for Fighting Blindness Canada at the same time!
Take advantage of the free time you’ll have by going for a hike, playing family board games, reading (or listening to) a book, dancing around your house, knitting a blanket, putting your baking skills to the test … there are endless activities that you can have fun doing all while giving your eyes a rest and raising funds for vision research.
