Use Proper Lighting

One of the most common reasons why people feel uncomfortable after they have been looking at the computer for an extended period is that they aren't using proper lighting. The contrast between a dark room and the bright computer screen can quickly cause the eyes to feel uncomfortable. Even though it might be easy to see the computer, make sure that the room is properly lit.

Minimize the Glare from the Computer Screen

Another reason why someone might feel like their eyes are having a hard time adjusting is that the glare from the computer can be straining. Often, people do not take the necessary steps to alter the brightness of the computer screen. As a result, the glare from the screen causes the eyes to strain, giving people a headache and making it hard to see. Ensure that the glare from the computer is turned down to an appropriate level.

Take Breaks While At the Computer

Perhaps the most important tip for everyone to remember is to take breaks from the computer screen. In today's world, everyone feels stress both at home and in the office. There is a lot of pressure to get things done as quickly as possible. Despite these expectations, people need to remember that eye care needs to come first. Take breaks from the computer screen and give your eyes a chance to take rest and recover. Then, you can return to the computer screen feeling refreshed and restored. Rest the eyes periodically.
