Tip # 1: Look away from the computer screen

Staring at a computer screen for too long can cause:


-Blurry vision

-Trouble focusing at a distance

-Dry eyes


-Neck, back, and shoulder pain

Take the following steps to protect your eyes:

-Make sure your glasses or contact lens prescription is up-to-date and adequate for computer use.

-Some people may need glasses to help with contrast, glare, and eyestrain when using a computer.

-Position your computer so that your eyes are level with the top of the monitor. This allows you to look slightly down at the screen.

-Try to avoid glare on your computer from windows and lights. Use an anti-glare screen if needed.

-Choose a comfortable, supportive chair. Position it so that your feet are flat on the floor.

-Every 20 minutes, rest your eyes by looking 20 feet away for 20 seconds. At least every 2 hours, take a 15 minute break.
