The health of your eyes is something we should never neglect. Much fewer people spend hours in front of a monitor. I leave some tips, so I’ve been collecting over the years based on my experience and reading.
Take a Break
Take breaks every so often. For example, take a 5-minute break every hour. Close your eyes and rub it with your hands for a few seconds. Do the meditation while closing your eyes. It will relieve your eyes and help you to give energy.
Set the screen brightness to a minimum with which you feel comfortable. Set the contrast low as much as possible with which you find comfortable.
If you still notice that you have dry eyes can also use eye drops. Concern your eye doctor or your pharmacist.
Make sure there is enough light. Much better if natural. But have in mind that too much light can also be harmful.
You can also download the Flu.x computer software. f.lux is a free software that warms up your computer display at night, to match your indoor lighting.
Keep the Monitor 60 inches Away
If possible, use a TFT monitor. If you have no choice but to use a CRT, or if you prefer it because of your job, be sure to place the screen guard as much as possible.
Don’t commit the folly of using a computer to read e-books, manuals, or any other kind of large document; Print it. If you usually read a lot, you need to get a book to read.
