Most of the computer users suffer from the symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) and an expert says that it is important to take breaks and blink regularly.
According to a recent study, prolonged sitting while at your desk can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
* Be aware of environmental factors. Air-conditioning and fans can worsen the dry-eye symptoms of CVS.
* If contact lenses make your eyes feel dry, avoid wearing them when using a computer. CVS is particularly common in contact lens wearers; at the London Vision Clinic, we often see patients who are choosing to have laser eye surgery because they find they can no longer wear their contact lenses for long periods, especially while using computers.
* Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
* Avoid ‘glare’ from windows and overhead lights.
* Ensure that your computer screen is not flickering.
* And, most importantly, have an eye examination.
