Ask an Eye Doctor: 3 Tips to Reduce Computer-Related Eye Strain, Cold Spring, Kentucky

Anyone with access to a computer knows too much screen time is less than easy on the eyes. However, there are a few ways to combat this unfortunate strain. Wing Eyecare is a locally owned and operated practice in Cincinnati, OH, wth eye doctors dedicated to helping patients see their best.

If you’re a regular computer user, you don’t have to live with eye strain. By making a few easy changes to your lifestyle, you can eliminate the nuisance—and potential safety risk—of dry, sore eyes. Follow the tips below to improve your everyday eye comfort:

  • eye doctorSchedule an Eye Exam: The best thing you can do for your vision is to schedule an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam. An eye doctor can diagnose your underlying conditions and prescribe appropriate eyewear to solve them. Let your doctor know how many hours you spend using the computer each day, as well as the average distance between your eyes and the screen.
  • Cut Down on Glare: Glare can make it hard to read and work on the computer, but your eyes take the brunt of the impact. To reduce eyestrain, find ways to eliminate this reflective light. Purchase an anti-glare screen you can affix to your computer monitor or prescription glasses with anti-reflective coating.
  • Alter Your Room’s Lighting: Excess light behind your computer screen can also cause soreness and discomfort in your eyes. Try closing your blinds to soften the sun’s rays, or swap out fluorescent bulbs for dim lamps to make things more comfortable.

With these tips, you can find a way to use your tech essentials comfortably. Visit an eye doctor at Wing Eyecare if you continue to experience pain.
