Headaches, blurred vision and sore eyes are symptoms of eyestrain. Your workspace setup could be contributing to the problem if you suffer from eyestrain. Here are some tips to follow:
~To reduce glare, position the computer so that neither you nor the screen faces a window.
~Dust the screen often.
~Relax your eyes every 15 -20 minutes by closing them or looking away from the screen for a couple minutes.
~Adjust lighting in the room to reduce glare. Ideally, the lighting in a room should be slightly dimmer than your computer monitor.
~Increase the size of the font onscreen.
~Don’t forget to blink! When we concentrate, we don’t blink as often which leads to painful, dry eyes.
~Have your eyes checked and make sure the doctor is aware you use the computer frequently. Glasses and contacts worn for other activities may not be good for computer work.
