Visual fatigue? We have the best tips to improve your lifestyle

It is very common in these times to work from home, so the use of the computer becomes excessive, causing eye fatigue. Studies show that eye fatigue and other annoying visual symptoms occur in 50 to 90% of people who work with computers.

These problems range from physical fatigue, decreased productivity, and increased errors at work.

Get a complete eye exam.

Getting a routine comprehensive eye exam is the most important thing to prevent or treat computer-related vision problems. The most advisable thing is to have an evaluation annually

Use adequate lighting.

In many cases, eye strain is caused by too much bright light, either from sunlight or very strong light from indoor lighting. If possible, position the screen so that the windows are to the side, rather than in front of or behind it.

Adjust the computer display settings.

Adjusting your computer screen settings can help reduce eye strain and fatigue. In general, these adjustments are beneficial:

Exercise your eyes.

To reduce the risk of eye strain from constant exertion, it is advisable to look away from the equipment at least every 20 minutes and let your gaze drift towards a distant object (at least 20 feet / 6 meters away) for at least 20 seconds

Take frequent breaks.

To reduce the risk of computer vision syndrome and neck, back and shoulder pain, take frequent breaks during the work day in front of the computer.
