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:
- Brightness: Adjust the screen brightness to be roughly the same brightness as your surrounding workstation. As a test, look at the white background on this web page. If it looks like a light source, it is too bright. If it looks dull and gray to you, it may be too dark.
- Text size and contrast: Adjust the text size and contrast according to your convenience, especially when reading or composing long documents
- Color temperature: When the screen's color temperature is lowered, the amount of blue light emitted is reduced for better and longer-lasting viewing comfort.
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.
