Many of us are stuck behind computers all day. Whether you’re a programmer, a project manager, or a writer, your eyes are challenged every day by  your working conditions. At Crescent Eye Care, we help patients who struggle with eye problems because of their computer screens. When your screens start to affect your eyes, you have a condition called computer eye syndrome. It’s a common issue that you don’t have to live with.

In our last blog, we shared some great tips for combating computer eye syndrome. Today, we have a few more ideas that might help you out.

Take Breaks

  • We know how difficult it can be to tear yourself away from the screen, especially when you’re overwhelmed with work. The fact is, even the smallest breaks can make a huge difference, not only for your eyes, but for your neck, back and shoulders. Studies have shown that five-minute breaks significantly reduce discomfort. We recommend you stand up and move around, taking the time to stretch.

Consider Computer Glasses

  • Did you know that eye strain can distract you? After using eye glasses, people are amazed at their ability to stay on-task. If you wear contact lenses, glasses can eliminate dry eyes and discomfort.
