March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month
Work-related eye injuries are not just limited to jobs that require eye safety gear – an office job can be just as hard on your eyes. One common issue is computer vision syndrome where too much screen time without breaks causes headaches, neck pain, back strain, and can even lead to dry eye disease. Staring at a screen prevents you from blinking enough to keep your eyes lubricated and moistened.
- Adjust your screen away from direct light and use an anti-glare screen.
- Practice 20-20-20! Every 20 minutes, look at an object 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
- Blink regularly to prevent your eyes from becoming too dry.
- Visit EyeCare Specialties for regular comprehensive eye exams.
