Because so many of us spend at least eight hours a day or more in front of a computer, eye dryness and fatigue are real problems. And because March has been designated as Workplace Eye Health and Safety Month, thought it might be timely to pass along a few tips from Prevent Blindness America for keeping our eyes healthy.
Place your screen 20 to 26 inches away from your eyes and a little bit below eye level.
Use a document holder placed next to your computer screen. It should be close enough so you don’t have to swing your head back and forth or constantly change your eye focus.
Change your lighting to lower glare and harsh reflections. Glare filters over your computer screen can also help.
Get a chair you can adjust.
Choose screens that can tilt and swivel. A keyboard that you can adjust is also helpful.
