Many of our patients will have found themselves having to work from home due to the Covid-19 lockdowns that we have faced over the last year, and in most cases this will lead to an increase in time spent in front of a computer screen or tablet for many of you. Obviously, more time staring at screens and monitors can bring on issues such as stiff necks, headaches and sore eyes, lets take a look at some very simple steps you can take to help yourself and take care of your vision.
Are your glasses up to date?
Make sure you have the appropriate and up to date glasses, also discuss with your optician about glasses for screen use. There are glasses that are specifically designed for this purposewith names like enhanced readers and office lenses or smart readers. These types of glasses are lenses that provide a large clear area for screen use, helping you to keep a good posture and fight fatigue.
