Computer Vision Syndrome

 

Computer Vision Syndrome is a term used to identify eye fatigue caused by prolonged view of the computer monitor. There is interesting research showing how the position of the monitor height and distance, glare and focal point are causing cumulative trauma to the eyes. Short breaks can let your eyes focus on objects that are further away and stretch the eye muscles. Reduce glare. Adjust the contrast and brightness of your screen. See other tips on glare, blinking and monitor placement.
