Check out these three tips from  Allaboutvision.com  to protect your eyes from the bad effects of computer screens.ucenje-online

  • Block out glare

To start, change the contrast and brightness on your screen to ease the  harsh effect on your eyes. If you are a glasses wearer, be sure to purchase anti-reflective or Clarifier® lenses. They absorb the glare from all angles and minimize the amount of reflection on the lenses. This allows you to see clearer and avoid eye strain.

  • Take a break

Find time to look away from your monitor about every 15 minutes. Giving eyes a break from focusing on a bright-lit screen can relieve some eye discomfort. It doesn’t have to be long, just take a second or two to stretch and refocus. Get a cup of coffee, make a trip to the water cooler, or take a quick spin in the ole’ office chair.

  • Get a complete eye exam

Last, but certainly not least, get a regular annual eye exam. Knowing your correct prescription is vital in alleviating computer eye strain. Visit a Dr. Tavel location at your convenience to keep your eyes healthy and safe.
