Eye Health and Safety Tips for Computer Users

Eye Health and Safety for Computer Users.Eye health and safety is something to be taken very seriously, in fact, each day over 2,000 Americans suffer an eye injury.

We usually think of work-related eye injuries as construction work, landscaping, and welding. Well, office work can be just as dangerous to your eyesight. One common eye problem is computer vision syndrome. Consistently being on your computer will not permanently damage your vision, but it will make your eyes feel irritated and fatigued.

Computer vision syndrome is not just a myth. Too much screen time and not enough breaks can cause headaches, neck pain, and dry eye – preventing eyes from staying lubricated and moistened.

Eye Health and Safety Tips for Computer Users:

  1. Reposition your screen
  2. Don’t forget to blink
  3. Use lubricating eye drops
  4. Stay hydrated
  5. Schedule regular comprehensive eye exams
