Computer Vision Syndrome is a term used to identify eye fatigue caused by prolonged viewing of a computer monitor. Research has shown the position of a monitor's height and distance, glare and focal point can cause cumulative trauma to the eyes. Give yourself relief by taking a few preventative steps now.

  Health Tips

  Relieve Computer/Tv Eyestrain.

Rub the palms of your hands together to produce warmth. Then cover your eyes with the palms of your hands (place the heal of the hand gently on the eye sockets). Move hands in slow circles for at least 30 seconds. Slowly release your hands.


  Blink, Blink, Blink!

The blinking reflex is a fast reflex that helps to moisten and relax the eyes. It is one of the most important reflexes that protect your eyes. Yet when you are looking at a monitor, you stop blinking. For example, you normally blink 22 times per minute, but when focused on a task such as reading, blinking decreases to an average of 12 times per minute. When viewing a monitor, you blink as little as four times per minute. At this slow rate, your eyes become irritated from tear evaporation and exposure. So remember to blink often.

  Take Short Breaks

To stretch the eye muscles take breaks frequently. Get up and move around to focus on objects at least 20 feet away, then a closer object. Repeat.

  Use Eye Drops

Use lubricant eye drops to refresh your vision and soothe tired, dry eyes.

  Check Your Vision Frequently

Consult with your doctor for advise on how often to have your vision checked.


Did You Know...

... screen static can cause eye fatigue due to dust and grime buildup? Here are terrific anti-static tips from our helpful customers on how to get rid of it!

  • Take a 1/2 tablespoon of Downy fabric softener, put it into a quart-size spray bottle and fill with tap water. Shake to mix and lightly spray on carpet to reduce static.
  • Use a humidifier to add moisture back into the air. Many buildings, homes and climates are low in humidity and can cause static to the point of damaging computers and electronics. Water fountains also add humidity.
  • Reduce the charge on your computer that makes it such a dust and dirt collector by using a recycled anti-static dryer sheet. (Don't use a new sheet: it has too much coating on it.)
