Stop computer eye strain now!

Eye strain, red eyes, blurry eyes, dry eyes, light sensitivity and headaches.  These are the symptoms of working in front of the computer every day.  Whether you have a paper to write; deadline to meet or just surfing the Internet, the computer screen can take a toll on your eyes. 

We all get these eye strain symptoms, but some get it worse than others.  Some doctors have even begun proclaiming a name to this computer eye strain as “Computer Vision Syndrome.”

How do we stop Computer Vision Syndrome?

1.  See your opthamalogist and ask for special prescription computer glasses to focus better on the computer screen.

2.  Okay, if you don’t want to look like a geek with glasses at your computer, lower your computer monitor so the top of the monitor is level with your eyes.  This way, it is easier for your eyes to work looking down and will eliminate dry eyes.

3.  Adjust the contrast of your monitor so the brightness matches the brightness of the room.

4.  Push the monitor away 26 inches away from you.

5.  Make sure the windows is not in front or back of you to prevent light glare.

6.  Turn the office lighting down or dim the lights someway in order to center the focus of your eyes on your screen.

7.  Take short 5 minute breaks to rest your eyes.
