Signs You May
have a problem
You may notice:
- Throbbing pain around the temples
- Blurred vision
- Nausea or vomiting
Tension in the neck and shoulders can lead
to eye pain, as tense muscles
can press on eye nerves at the back of your neck.
Make sure your monitor is at eye level, and your keyboard is at a comfortable height.
Bifocal wearers should lower monitors more than usual, to prevent the need to tip the head upwards.
Find an optician
There are specialist lenses for frequent screen use.
Ask your independent optician about specialist lenses if you wear glasses and regularly use digital devices. They will be able to recommend products that protect against blue light damage and help prevent computer vision syndrome.
