Most people don’t realize that eye fatigue from computers can be greatly reduced by the glasses they wear.
Most people who’ve worked on a computer for a long time wear glasses, and while research shows that computer monitors do not emit any sort of radiation that can cause damage to your eyes, eye strain and fatigue are common complaints that stem from long-term computer use.
Eye fatigue, headaches, dry eyes, and other symptoms that come from hours of computer use are caused by the muscles of your eyes attempting to focus on a fixed distance for a long period of time. It’s akin to the strain you might feel from wearing a backpack for hours on end; in the beginning, it might be hardly noticeable, but after a long time you might feel pains in parts of your back you didn’t know existed.
Eye comfort is extremely important if you’re working on a computer for long hours on a regular basis. You should do your best to do everything you can to keep your eyes relaxed and to avoid ever getting eye fatigue symptoms in the first place. Nobody likes to go home after work with a headache and sore eyes, both of which could potentially ruin the rest of your night.
It is also important to keep up with your eye prescription. If you’re getting headaches from computer use and reading but haven’t had an eye exam in over a year or two, you should probably see your eye doctor and talk about your symptoms. A new prescription is probably a good starting point to get rid of your discomfort.
