Looking at the computer screen too long not only contributes to eye strain but also creates a unique kind of stress on the visual system. This way of looking closely for a long period causes nearsightedness for children, as well. It is common for computer users to experience eyestrain, vision headaches, deteriorating vision, and the need for stronger and stronger prescriptions.
Sometimes working on a computer creates invisible strain you do not notice until the day is over. This is worse if you do not do anything about it as it can cause physical and mental fatigue.
There are four critical sources that can create computer eye strain and other computer stress syndromes such as poor lighting, constantly fixated eyes and head, improper posture, and your mindset about your computer work.
Find out about proper light, simple ways to give your eyes and body a break to relieve eye strain and visual stress, and other healthy visual habits while working at the computer.
If you practice these good visual habits, you not only relieve your eye strain, but your vision also might improve.
Feel free to bring a sack lunch. Tea and cookies are included.
