If running your company requires long hours at your computer, you have probably experienced bouts of eyestrain. There are things that you can do to protect your eyes as you work at your computer, so that you do not develop a condition called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). While this condition will not permanently damage your eyes, it can cause recurrent eyestrain, dryness and redness, and is often accompanied by headaches, and neck and shoulder pain.
Here are five tips that can help you reduce eyestrain at your computer:
1. Give your eyes a rest! Every fifteen minutes, step away from your computer, stand and stretch, or simply look away from your computer screen for a prolonged period.
2. Try wearing glasses that are designed specifically for looking at computer screens. Normal bifocals, progressives or reading glasses may not provide the correct level of magnification for reading at this distance.
3. Use lubricating eye drops if your eyes start feeling dry and itchy, and remember to blink your eyes often, and avoid that computer “stare.”
4. Invest in an anti-glare filter for your monitor that will reduce annoying glare and reflections.
5. Make sure that your computer screen is at an arm’s length from you, and positioned right in front of you. Your monitor should also be a few inches below your face, which will allow your neck to remain in a relaxed position as you work.
