Computer Use Guide
Protective eyewear is not required for people who spend most of their day on computers and other electronic devices. However, there are some recommended ergonomic and personal adjustments to reduce the likelihood of vision-related complaints, i.e., headaches, fatigue, tired eyes, difficulty focusing. Especially given the increase in working remotely, due to the pandemic and likely beyond, these suggestions make more sense than ever.
- Wear glasses prescribed for computer use
- Adjust the computer monitor height and distance
- Reduce glare caused by lighting and sunlight
- Drink plenty of water
- Follow the 20-20-20 rule: Take a 20-second break to view something 20ft away every 20 minutes
