Given the important function our eyes perform for us, it would seem to follow that we'd give them the best care possible, but sometimes we get too busy or we forget to do a few simple things that can keep our eyes healthy. Our eye gives us vision and power to see this beautiful world. Its the most important gift from our Creator to us .. so we need to take good care of our eyes

Most computer users suffer from the problem of tired eyes, eyestrain, dark circles and headaches– when eyes feel achy, weak, or heavy due to intense use of computer. Fortunately, it is not a disease, and does not require medical treatment – but it never hurts to know how to prevent it.

Studies have shown that stress, active nightlife and above all, the fact that most of us spend maximum time in front of the computer lead to dark circles, puffed and tired eyes. Timely eye test & treatment is essential for such difficulties.
Tired Eyes

Specifically with computer users, physical and visual discomfort is experienced by many after just a few hours in front of computers. It appears that PC users suffer from repetitive stress of their eyes and want an immediate solution to revive the tired eyes.

Studies show that most computer users start to feel eye-muscle stress after two or more hours at the computer. This usually starts with tired eyes. 

With more time at the computer, discomfort frequently spreads to the head resulting in headaches, burning of the eyes, blurred vision, loss of focus, double vision, and neck and shoulder pains. Before it is too late, your stressed out eyes need to be relaxed and revitalized so that you feel fresh later in the day.

So here are some useful tips for you to follow to keep your eyes healthy and stress free.

Tips to reduce eyestrain

Modify your workstation: Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height.
Use proper lighting.

Adjust the brightness: Match the computer screen to the brightness of the environment. The contrast between the background and on-screen characters should be high.

Minimize the glare: Use window shades, blinds or drapes to block excessive sunlight or install an anti-glare screen to minimize reflections.

Take frequent breaks: Full-time computer users should take a 10 minute break every hour.

Blink more often: Tears in the eye evaporate more rapidly during long non-blinking phases and cause dry eyes.
Get an eye examination or eye test done.

Re-focus your eyes: Look away from your computer screen every 10-15 minutes and focus for 5-10 seconds on a distant object.

Exercise even when sitting. Move about or exercise frequently.
