Excessive use of computers and other devices is a necessity for most people. However, the level of ultraviolet radiation emitted from device screens is harmful to the eyes, impairing vision.

To keep your eyes healthy and reduce eye fatigue, you need to eat healthy foods, have a healthy sleep, and follow certain recommendations to improve your vision. OBOZ.UA found out what to do.

Distance between eyes and screen

Eyes should be kept a little further away from the screen. Experts recommend sitting at a distance of at least one hand between the eyes and the screen. In addition, the position of the screen should correspond to the level of the gaze, being directly or slightly below your eyes. The lighting in the room should be bright enough.

Blink your eyes and adjust the modes on the device

On average, a person should blink 15-20 times per minute, but concentration on the screen can reduce this number. Thus, the eyes do not receive the necessary moisture and remain dry due to the lack of tearing. In addition, adjust the screen modes and brightness to make your work easier.

20-20-20 formula

This is a formula to avoid eyestrain. Thus, you should pause every 20 minutes, look at a point 20 feet (6 meters) away from your eyes, and hold the position for 20 seconds.

Some tips to help maintain eye health

  • If you wear glasses, get regular checkups with your doctor.
  • Do not stay in one activity for a long time.
  • If your job requires you to use a computer all the time, buy protective glasses.
  • Make sure the light in the room is behind you.
