Self Help Tips For Computer Users
  • Follow the 20 – 20 – 20 rule. After every 20 minutes of work, look 20 feet away from the computer screen and blink 20 times.
  • Eyes blink less during computer use and we tend to stare, during which time the blink rate falls, so consciously blink while working on the computer; try to avoid half-blinks.
  • Use lubricating eye drops in both eyes before every session on the computer. If use is frequent, then preferably preservative free lubricating eye drops should be used. These are available at most chemists without prescription.
  • Moderate to severe eye fatigue may need glasses as some cylindrical refractive error may need to be corrected. If you work several hours a day, you may need numbered computer glasses that give the eye rest while on the computer. Our optometrist will assist you get the right pair.
  • Avoid contact lenses while sitting on the computer, as they tend to worsen the dryness of eyes caused by computer use.
  • Sit approximately 22 to 28 inches away from the computer screen; sitting too close or too far away causes eyestrain.
  • The center of the computer screen should be 4-5 inches below your eye level. It is best to look at your computer in a downward gaze.
  • This position will allow the lids to cover most part of the eye and still view normally, with less surface exposure and drying of tear film.
  • Check your posture from time to time to reduce neck, shoulder and wrist pains. Keep your wrist straight while typing and not supported on sharp edges.
  • Try to use adjustable chairs. Your legs should always rest on ground.
  • Arrange room lighting such that glare and reflections on screen are minimum. Preferably use a flat panel monitor since it doesn’t reflect light.
  • Place light sources perpendicularly above the monitor so that they do not shine in your eyes or on your screen. Also adjust the screen contrast for your comfort.
  • Screen top should be tilted 10 – 20 degrees away. Adjust tilt to eliminate reflections.
  • Position your keypad such that your wrists and lower arms are parallel to the floor.
  • Take frequent breaks during your working hours.
  • Try to use a copyholder for documents to reduce strain on your neck.
  • Whether you use glasses or lenses visit your ophthalmologist for a routine eye check up.
