Keeping Computer Vision Syndrome at bay

Here some quick tips to keep eye strain at bay:

1. Blink often

When looking at a computer or hand-held digital device, it”s common for you to blink two to three times less than you normally would. This can lead to dry eyes. Blinking bathes your eyes in tears, and tears are naturally therapeutic for the eyes.

2. Follow the 20/20/20 rule

When spending long periods in front of a digital device, every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away to allow your eyes to rest.

3. Ensure proper lighting

To help ease the strain on your eyes, keep bright lighting overhead to a minimum and position your desk lamp to shine on your desk, and not at you. Position your computer screen in a way that reduces reflections and glare from windows or overhead lights.

4. Adjust the location of computer screen

Optimally, the computer screen should be 15 to 20 degrees below eye level (about 4 or 5 inches) as measured from the centre of the screen and 20 to 28 inches from the eyes. more
