Reduce the screen brightness when working in dim environment.
Adjust the brightness of the screen accordingly to environment you are working in. Always have a dimmer brightness in your monitor with respect to the brightness in the room. Make sure you never put it so dim that you have to strain again to figure out what is happening there in the monitor.
Keep the monitor 30cm away from your eyes.
This is the safest distance according to me, I often find this distance comfortable to my eyes. This wont tire your eyes much when you compared to when sitting much closer. I have also read a lot of people stating one arm distance is much better, try working around with various distances. In case you decide more the distance more the comfortable you are, please make sure you keep the resolution accordingly. Make sure whatever you are doing is big enough for your eyes to see.
Give rest to your eyes.
Use dark colored themes
Few tips to keep in mind.
- Don’t look at the screen for more than 15-20 minutes continuously. Look
around to distant objects frequently instead of staring at computer
- The eyes get dry due to continuous work at computer. We
blink very less if we concentrate on something. try blinking frequently whenever you are not looking at screen. Make it a habit.
- Look up and concentrate on your forehead, where the eyebrows meet for 5-10 seconds. It helps in strain reduction.
- Don’t forget to reduce the brightness of your monitor. Make it optimal, neither too high nor too low.
