How to give sore eyes a break



If you are one of these people that stares with intense and prolonged concentration at a monitor for long times, you probably have experienced that your eyes have become tired. 

It has a name this condition: Computer Vision Syndrome. I am sure it is not healthy!

It gets worse with age. What happens is that over the age of 40,  your eyes become less flexible, and its harder to focus so that you can get eye strain.

So we look at the monitors we sell for them to have Blue Light Filter.

Please give your sore eyes a break. 

A well-known rule, '20-20-20' law, which I suggest you adopt. 

Every 20 minutes, shift your eyes to look at an object at least 20 feet (6 meters ) away for at least 20 seconds. 

Here are some more tips.

- Reduce the brightness on your screen. For most business purposes, you do not need it that bright. You can always make it brighter if you need more colour. 

- Anti-glare screen protector work 

-Do not sit too close to your monitor. A bigger screen will help you sit back further if you tend to work for a long time on one screen, thinking of moving the bigger screen there. 

-Try increasing the font size on the monitor. The bigger the writing is, the less your eye will stain.

-Consider switching to a curved monitor. Curved monitors have less distortion, more importantly, a wider field of view, and have better viewing angles. This reduces eye strain. 

-Reading glasses, you can get decent ones nowadays from a two-dollar shop. 

Try to make it a habit to blink more often when looking at a monitor. 

I hope this helps.
