Monday, November 9, 2009

Of errors made by the many users of the computer exposure to strain the eyes and the longer they sit in front of the screen, without indifference, considering it is only natural! Is not surprising that computers cause eye strain, studies have shown that computer users tend to stare at the screen incandescent light without blinking for much longer periods than do users of typewriters.

And that many computer users sit down and face to face with the screen.

In addition, the computer screens reflect a great deal of glare from the shiny objects nearby, even from the clothes the same user.

Our eyes and vision were designed for viewing distance as hunters and gatherers, and not for ongoing near work as required by regular computer use. As a result, Computer Eye Strain is becoming one of the major eye complaints heard by eye doctors today.

Symptoms can include increased myopia, blurred vision, headaches, slow refocusing, difficulty concentrating, neck, shoulder and back pain

Eye strain can be reduced significantly by taking regular breaks from the computer, resting your eyes, stretching and doing eye exercises.
