As computers have become part of our everyday life, more and more people are experiencing a variety of ocular symptoms related to computer use. These include eyestrain, tired eyes, irritation, redness, blurred vision, and double vision, collectively referred to as computer vision syndrome.
Take the following steps to reduce symptoms of dry eyes:
- Rest your eyes
Regularly look away from your computer screen and focus on distant objects. Looking far away relaxes the focusing muscle inside the eye, which in turn reduces eye fatigue.
- Use adequate lighting
Eye strain is often caused by excessive sunlight coming in through the window or by bright room lighting.
- Reduce glare
Glare reflected from light-coloured painted walls and shiny surfaces, as well as reflections on your computer screen, can cause eye strain.
- Upgrade your display
Changing from an old-style cathode ray tube (or CRT) monitor to a modern LCD screen can help avoid eye strain.
- Adjust your monitor’s settings
Adjusting your computer’s display settings can help reduce eye strain and fatigue.
Lubricating eye drops and special computer glasses help relieve ocular surface-related symptoms.
