Most of us spend time in front of a computer, regardless of what profession we’re in. Prolonged computer use can harm your eyes and even lead to poor vision. The most common result of prolonged computer use is Myopia (near sightedness). Computer usage can make certain condition such as dry eye syndrome, even worse. Below are a few pointers on how to reduce the effect of computer screens on your eye health.

 

Sitting Properly
Not only does sitting properly at your desk enable you to be more efficient, it also helps reduce back and neck pain.

 

Take Regular Breaks
Taking a break to view a far away object allows your eye muscles to relax and improve their flexibility. Our blink rate drops significantly when working in front of the computer, which makes our eyes dry and sore, blinking often goes a long way in alleviating this.

Switch Off
It goes without saying that reducing the amount of time you spend infront of the computer is a good place to start. If this is in frontsible, computer spectacles may go a long way in preventing Myopia.
