Office Health Scares Part IV: Eye Strain

eye strain

Problem: According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of eye strain include: blurry vision, sensitive eyes, watery or dry eyes, headaches or sore neck. They usually manifest themselves after long hours of staring at the screen.

Prevention: We know that sometimes, long hours in front of the computer are unavoidable. We all have those deadlines to keep to. So let’s do all we can to lessen the strain on our eyes as we do that:

Increase your font size, so you don’t have to squint (suggests Microsoft)

Rest your eye frequently (sometimes just looking away from your computer screen is enough)
