Our work days are spent more and more on the computer, and “digital eye strain” has become an epidemic, by all accounts. Three-quarters of workers who use computers exclusively report vision problems. They also report other eyestrain related issues, like loss of focus and recurring headaches. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to minimize your problems.
The first step is to invest in quality reading glasses.
Reading glasses for men and women can mitigate monitor flickering to increase focus and lower the number of contractions your pupils experience while working. For the fashion-savvy, designer reading eyewear makes a statement while helping your eyes.
Position your desktop for the greatest ergonomic comfort.
Your monitor should be directly in front of you, about an arm's length away. Never look in one direction for extended periods of time. Your neck and back will thank you. Reduce glare by installing filters on your monitor that will reduce strain on the pupils.
Get up and move around.
Alleviate headaches and neck pain with brief massages and short spurts of physical activity.
Increase the font size of your web browser.
This is as simple as pressing Ctrl and moving the mouse wheel. When your eyes focus on smaller text, they are forced to work much harder, and fatigue onset will be faster.
Taking these steps will help, but it's up to you to remain consistent. Work smarter, not harder. And never forget to turn on the lights!
