How to eliminate the risks of eye problems when using the computer.

When the number of people operating from home continues to grow, so does the amount of time that a computer screen operates remotely.

More opportunity for eye-related complications is created by the additional time spent on a computer, whether it is on a laptop, notebook, e-reader or mobile phone. This will occur in what is known as CVS or Computer Vision Syndrome. An improperly positioned device can bring on CVS, resulting in eye dryness, irritation, a loss of concentration and an overall negative impact on work performance.

This occurs for many reasons.   First, to retain clear vision at near working distances, considerable muscular activity is required. The sensory system simply exhibits muscle exhaustion over hours. Second, continuous close work often commands enormously intense focus which can contribute to visual tunneling that enhances distractibility and decreases the duration of attention.

Finally, the blink feature is disrupted for someone operating on a computer. The blink generates moisture which is an important part of how the eye takes care of itself. Around 15 times a minute, frequent blinking happens. However, reports show that when using computers and other digital display systems, blinking only happens around 5 to 7 times a minute. Less moisture on the surface of the eye will cause vision blurring, watering, and eye burning.

Here are five ways to support and maintain optimum eye protection against Computer Vision Syndrome.

  1. Place the viewable area of the screen a little below the sightline.

The computer should be placed for a slight downward gaze, assuming reasonable ergonomics on the desk and chair. The subtly downward gaze is better on the eye than gazing up or looking straight across. It helps to pull down the eyelid and helps eliminate the chances of drafts affecting it, particularly when there is an air conditioning unit in the room. It helps safeguard against dryness. Furthermore, with both feet down on the concrete, the proper screen position encourages healthy posture.

  1. Eliminate or reduce screen glare.

The effect of too much glare may be light toxicity or irritation. It may impair the capacity of one to play their usual job task. When you look at your work terminal, a successful test is to put a folder above your head. If it becomes easier to read with the archive, pain and injury glare can be troublesome for the user.

  1. Minimize exposure to blu light.

When computers get more modern and mature, so does blue light sensitivity. This form of light has immediate effects, including the long-term macular health effect, the portion of the eye that processes vision from 20 to 20. Blue light will impair the rhythm of sleep as well. Filters and coatings can help minimize exposure to blue light.

  1. Allow for workstations to enable peripheral vision.

Workstations should be designed to enable peripheral vision to experience ambient visual stimulus or eye movement. Vision works well where not only one kind is treated to a wide spectrum of visual stimuli when blocked from seeing others.

  1. Take Breaks.

Users should retain control of blinking, align displays in the right way, stop multiple screens, and take breaks to best prevent computer-related eye stress. It can help to ease a high degree of eye tension and ensure a more positive work environment by standing up, going about, and even gentle relaxation or rotating of the limbs, wrists, spine, and back.

Do you sit down behind the computer a lot?

If yes, what do you do to relieve eye tension?
