Relieve Eye Fatigue Caused by Computer Monitor
06.28.2011 1 Comment
After finishing up a hard day’s work, many of us come home bleary-eyed with a raging headache — but we don’t have to. In this digitally-inclined era, most people spend the lion’s share of a work day online, parked in front of a computer. And all of that online activity — from digging through a bloated inbox to tinkering around in a spreadsheet — means staring at a bright, back-lit screen for hours on end.
Common complaints like red, irritated eyes, headaches, neck pain, and blurred vision are all underlying symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome, a widespread medical condition common in these high tech times. Unfortunately, going home doesn’t exactly spell relief; odds are you unwind in front of a screen too. Since you’re probably not going to be giving up that iPad or 60″ HDTV any time soon, you may want to consider finding ways to give your eyes a break.
