Here are some helpful hints on how to avoid eye strain based upon a 20-20-20 rule.
- Every 20 minutes give your eyes a break and take your eyes off your computer screen. Try to stand up and move around at least once every 20 minutes.
- For at least 20 seconds give your eyes a break. Blink often to refresh your eyes. Many people blink less when working at a computer. Blinking helps product tears that moisten and refresh your eyes.
- Look at something 20 feet away like focusing on something outside if you have a window or perhaps across the office you work in. Look at a picture across the hall. If possible lean back and close your eyes for a few moments.
It also helps to adjust your computer display settings. Adjusting the brightness, text size, and contrast of your display can help reduce eye strain and fatigue.
You'll find that by doing so, your focus on your work will increase while your eye strain symptoms will start to decrease.
