Computer Effect on Eyes

  Computer Effect on Eyes  
Does the computer damage eyes? To an extent, yes. The letters that we see on the computer screen are a result of pixels that are put together to form a letter. They are not as well defined as the letters on a printed page are. The eyes find it difficult to focus on these letters and that is why several problems manifest in a short span of time. Along with that, other factors like poor lighting conditions and sitting on a chair that offers no proper support are also some of the things that lead to eye problems
Preventing Eye Strain

There is a need to protect eyes from computers or laptops, at least the incorrect usage of it. Here are some things that you should keep in mind and follow without fail for keeping your eyes healthy:

    * Make sure that the screen is placed at a level that is lower than your normal vision.
    * Ensure that there is effective lighting.
    * If possible, have an anti-glare coating screen fitted over the computer.
    * Consciously blink your eyes whenever you remember to. This will prevent half the problems.
    * Make sure to give your eyes rest after every hour in front of the computer. Splash water on your face in that break.
    * Place the screen at least 30 inches away from you.
    * Adjust the computer brightness to a minimum.
    * The correct posture to sit at the computer is - Shoulders relaxed, thighs horizontal, forearms and hands in a straight line, proper lower back support, feet flat on the ground. This is the position that will prevent any problems.
    * Do some simple eye exercises to improve vision and strengthen the eye.
    * Do some palming for the eye. For this, rub your palms together till they are warm, then make a pad of your palms and place over both eyes to form a cover. Hold this position for a good 5 minutes for instant relief and rejuvenation of the eyes.
    * Make sure to have some re-wetting eye drops if you are prone to developing dry eyes.
    * Never rub the eyes.
    * Wear anti-glares or zero powered specs to protect your eyes and getting eyes tired from computer.
    * Make sure to visit an ophthalmologist periodically to keep a check on your eye health and rule out any serious problems.

Now that you know what are the effects of constant exposure to the computer, why wait till you are complaining about eyes tired from computer? Make sure that it does not happen by following the above mentioned pointers and keep your eyes healthy.
