Relieve Computer Eye Strain With These Simple Tips
Many of us spend a good portion of our day looking at a computer screen—some averaging as much as 10 hours of screen time per day!
Even if you don’t have a desk job that requires a lot of time in front of a computer, it’s important to understand the effects it can have on our bodies and our vision. Computer Vision Syndrome can cause headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision, and shoulder or neck pain. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) affects 64-90 percent of all office workers.
Computer Ergonomics Can Relieve Computer Eye Strain
Computer ergonomics is the science of designing a work environment to maximize efficiency and reduce the risk of injuries. Here are a few tips to reduce eye strain and other computer-associated issues.
Sit with your head and neck upright and aligned with your torso.
Always face your screen directly. Avoid having your back twisted or viewing your screen with your head turned.
If you wear glasses, position yourself so you comfortably view your entire screen without tilting your head.
Keep your mouse close to your keyboard so you aren’t constantly reaching for it.
Try to get your computer screen so the top of the screen is at or below eye level. This will reduce the strain on your neck.
Make sure your screen is the right distance from your face. It should be about an arms’s length away.
If you think you may be experiencing Computer Vision Syndrome, contact us. There are a wide range of solutions to relieve your eye strain, from special lens coatings to adjusting your workstation. We can help you determine the best solution for your unique situation.
Thanks for being a valued part of our practice family!
