7 Eye-Saving Tips

1. Look away from the screen regularly. Focusing on an object far away, such as the water cooler down the hall or a tree outdoors, is a simple stretching exercise for eye muscles. Quickly shift your focus from near to far 3-4 times.
2. Position your monitor. It should be one 18-24 inches away, and about 6 inches below eye level.
3. Use friendly lighting. Bright fluorescent lights are a poor choice. Dimmer lights are better. Have a desk lamp for reading and doing other close work at your desk.
4. Minimize glare on the computer screen. Block excessive sunlight using window shades, blinds, or drapes. Or move your computer to a part of the room where sunlight doesn't cause glare on the screen. Antiglare screen guards and hoods also work.
5. Take regular, short breaks. A 5-minute break every hour reduces eyestrain. This is a good opportunity to oxygenate your blood with some whole-body stretches, to hydrate with a drink of water, and relax with some deep breaths, all of which support eye health.
6. Blink more often. Computer rooms are notoriously dry, and blinking is your body's natural way of lubricating your eyes and preventing dry eyes. Normally the eye blinks 10-12 times a minute.
7. Position yourself directly in front of computer. Not off to the side, as this will cause additional strain on your eye and neck muscles.
