Answer: Stop looking at your computer screen so much.
Over the past year or so, I’ve noticed some slight changes in my vision. I wasn’t concerned until the other day. My eyes hurt. Things were blurry. It was time to do something about it.
Yesterday I had my first official eye exam at an optometrist office.
30 minutes and $40 later, he tells me that I have 20/20 in each eye individually and 20/15 together. My problem, eye fatigue from looking at my computer screen too much.
Yeah…so I spent the $40 so you could save it. The remedy? Look away from your computer screen about every hour or so and focus on something at a distance. Give your eyes time to focus then resume your screen work. This simple exercise will help your eyes relax enough to reduce some eye fatigue.
Of course, he also said that the bigger the screen, the better. I guess I need to order that 30″ HD display after all.
What was your most recent excuse to order that thing/gadget you wanted?
