- Neck and shoulder pain
- Blurred vision
- Strained eye
- Dry eyes
There are special glasses available for you to wear whenever you use an electronic device for a long period of time. Such glasses make it easier for your eyes to bear the light and glare cast from modern-day device screens, which reduces the symptoms associated with computer vision symptom.
Additional Steps to Take
Besides special glasses, there are additional things you can do to maintain your eye health while staring at electronic screens. Be sure to take a 20-second break from staring at a screen every 20 minutes to focus on an object at least 20 feet away. Take steps to eliminate glares on screens, sit with proper posture while in front of a screen and make sure there’s plenty of reading light nearby. Finally, if you know you have a problem with your vision, such as near/farsightedness or astigmatism, it’s best to take steps to correct or treat it before looking at another electronic screen.
