Getting work done at a computer each day makes you particularly susceptible to a condition called computer eye syndrome. It’s quickly becoming common issue among computer workers. Do you suffer from eye strain? Do your eyes get dry and your head ache? You’re experiencing CES, and it’s time to make an appointment with Crescent Eye Care. We understand that you have to spend hours with your computer screens, and we have tips for avoiding eye troubles. In our last blog, we suggested taking breaks and investing in eye glasses.

Reduce Glare

  • When you get glare from your computer and sunlight combining with bright paint colors and reflective surfaces, it can be too much for your eyes to handle. Consider putting an anti-glare film on your monitor and keep the blinds lowered. If you use glasses, the lenses can be treated with an anti-reflective coating to reduce any glare coming from the inside or outside of yourlenses.

Get an Eye Exam

  • The best thing you can do to prevent CES is have a comprehensive eye exam. Get the most out of your appointment by knowing how far you sit from your screen and the time you spend staring at it. Your eye doctor will be able to give you the best advice. We also recommend you see your eye doctor at least once a year to keep track of your vision.
