The College of Optometrists has these top tips:
1. Wear your glasses if you need them
2. Blink regularly
3. THE 20-20-20 RULE: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds
TIP: look away from the screen when doing nudges.
4. Tilt the top of the monitor approximately 15 degrees away from you, to create the best viewing angle
5. Keep your screen free of marks
6. Position your screen to minimize reflections
7. Use document holders to secure reading or reference material
8. Use a character size that is visible
When focusing on a screen, the amount of moisture in your eyes may reduce, and you will blink less. This may cause dry and uncomfortable eyes.
Resting the eyes can prevent eye strain and dryness.
