Eye Strain Caused By Your Computer

By Hege Crowton

Visual problems like eyes strain may result from overusing the muscles of your eyes. If not careful, eye strain will occur in any eye muscle held in one position for a long period of time.

These eye straining activities are as follows: reading, watching television, or staring at the computer.

People with occupations that require lots of staring such as dressmaking, designers, or computer engineers are prone to developing eye strain. Even people who do a lot of reading is prone to developing eye strain like medical students, lawyers, scientists, and researchers.

The muscles of your inner eye tightens and irritates your eyes, making you feel very uncomfortable, resulting to eye strain. A five-minute break from time to time is very good to your eyes.

Eye strain may be caused by improper lighting, excessive glaring at the computer screen, bad position of the computer screen, or difficulty reading copy material.

Eye strain may present with the following symptoms: pain and burning in and behind the eyes. There may also be headache and eye fatigue. Blurred vision, dry eyes, itching eyes, and burning eyes.

It is important to consult a qualified eye doctor at once when you experience such symptoms to prevent possible damage and to learn eye exercises that you can do.

If you suspect that your eye strain is due to too much staring at the computer monitor, then you may adjust the contrast of your monitor to high. Also try to reposition your screen to avoid glare.

When outdoors, do not be caught dead without sunglasses.

You may try to arrange your work station so the lighting will not hurt your eyes. Vision breaks are also recommended, so is changing your eye focus once in a while to relax the eye muscles.

Eye exercises such as rolling the eyes and tightly close the eye will greatly relieve you with your eye strain.

Make sure that the computer screens are clean and streak-free.
