Improperly adjusted monitors can lead to neck strain, eye strain and headaches.
To prevent eye strain follow 20/20/20 rule.
What is 20/20/20 rule?
Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. It’s an easy reminder to take break and prevent eye strain.
Judging a distance of 20 feet inside can be difficult, but focusing on a tree across the street should work well.
Alternately, a person can benefit from closing their eyes for 20 seconds every 20 minutes.
Symptoms of Eye strain:
Eye watering, blurred vision, dry eyes, headaches, eye redness
Tips to avoid strains and headaches.
- Adjust monitor properly and increase room’s overall lighting.
- A person blinks less than usual when using digital screens resulting in dry out eyes. Use drops or artificial tears.
- Get regular eye checkups.
