5 Simple Ways to Reduce Computer Eye Strain

I’ve been working as a full time internet marketer for almost 2 years now. I really enjoy the freedom and not having a boss but one of the things that I don’t like about it is that I spend too much time in front of my laptop every day that my eyes are starting to really feel its bad effects.  This past few days I’ve been researching online about it and I’ve found some interesting things that you might want to know if you want to reduce eye strain at your computer.

  1. Light Your Workstation Properly –  It’s a good idea to use  a table lamp and place it at either side. You also need to know that if you work near a sunny window, it’s recommended to use a curtain so that the sunlight will not directly fall onto your monitor. On the other hand, it’s not good to work in a dark room because your eyes will struggle between the extremes of dark and light.
  2. Use Simple Computer Themes – There are many Vista, XP and Windows 7 themes on the net but make sure to choose the simple ones that don’t have very bright colors.
  3. Change your Monitor Settings – Configure the graphic settings of your computer for optimal visual comfort. You may also want to adjust its contrast, color and brightness in such a way that your eyes will still be comfortable even if you stare at it for a long period of time.
  4. Position your Monitor the Right Way – Don’t position your computer monitor very near your eyes for obvious reasons. The recommended distance between your eyes and the monitor must be about 20-30 inches. Your monitor too must be slightly at a downward angle.
  5. Use computer glasses – You can visit your optometrist so you can get a prescription. Don’t buy over the counter computer glasses because there’s no such thing.
