Tips and Tricks for Healthy Eyes
You might have recognised one or more symptoms caused by using digital devices. It is important you know how to prevent them. Here are some practical tips to help you to keep your eyes healthy.
Keep your distance
• Make sure you keep enough distance between your eyes and the screen. For computers and laptops it is best to position your screen at arm’s length.
This medium range helps prevent unnecessary fatigue caused by squinting or continuously repositioning the head and neck to accommodate prescription glasses.
• Hand-held devices should be kept a safe distance from your eyes and just below eye level. While you may be able to read better at a short distance, it can cause irritated eyes, strain and pain.
• When it comes to height, a computer or television screen should always be placed directly in front of your face, and slightly below eye level so that the viewing angle does not exceed 35 degrees.
