Tips for Healthy, Comfortable Vision at the Computer
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to maximize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and that you have the correct glasses or contact lens prescription (if necessary). Be certain to tell your optician about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the computer. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for working at the computer.
Take regular breaks from the computer throughout the day to give your eyes a rest.
