Preventing eye fatigue - Deepstash

Preventing eye fatigue

  • Put more space between yourself and your computer screen. The monitor should be about 25 inches away from your face. This will also help with your posture.
  • Tilt your screen slightly downwards. This can help reduce glare, which often contributes to eye strain. You can also use a blue-light-blocking screen cover for your laptop or wear glasses that block blue light to help reduce any glare. 
  • As you work, check your screen’s brightness and compare it to the lighting around you.
  • Set your devices’ night-time preferences to warm (or get yellow-lens glasses).
  • When you’re working on a laptop, take a break every 20 minutes. Look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds to give your eyes a chance to relax.
