Are you suffering from pain associated with the amount of time you spend with your eyes glued to your computer or phone screen? The Doctors have tips that may help you find relief!
We meet Connie, who says since she began working from home she has been dealing with neck, back, and eye strain. She says she is also suffering from headaches she believes are related to her at-home workspace.
Optometrist Dr. Bridget Anderson says these issues are common and she weighs in on eye yoga, which is coordinated eye movements, which some people believe helps to alleviate eye strain and vision-related issues. She says eye yoga will not change anyone's prescription, but may help you relax or may promote mindfulness.
To help your eyes while working from home or the office, the optometrist says it is important to not bring your screen too close (larger monitors should be 20 inches away, smaller screens 13 inches away) and if print or text on the screen is too small, to use your computer's zoom function.
Additionally, Dr. Anderson also says to give your eyes a break every 20 minutes that lasts for 20 seconds, where you look at something 20 feet away. She also tells her patients to take a 15 minute break for every 2 hours they spend looking closely at their screen, and during this break, you should not be looking at your phone. She also tells Dr. Ian Smith that blinking enough (the average person blinks around 20 times a minute) during the day is important because too few blinks can lead to long term concerns about chronic dry eyes.
