22 Ways To Reduce EyeStrain At The Computer


Recommended Posts

Our good buds over at Lifehacker always have some good tips on hand to share. Today's tip comes from "IPG Lighting: here are there suggestions for 3 taking care of those weary computer eye strains we all get:

Do you spend a lot of time in front of the computer? Ever rub your eyes and want to stop working? You may be experiencing Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), the official diagnosis given to a range of symptoms that include:


dry and strained eyes


neck ache

blurred vision

CVS, more commonly known as computer eyestrain, is due to over- or misuse of computer monitors, bad lighting and other environmental and ergonomic factors"

1 Take a Break – an Easy Solution

2 Light Your Workspace Properly

3 Avoid working in a dark room. Your monitor will be like a bright beacon in the dark. Your eyes will have to struggle between the extremes of light and dark. If you must work in near dark conditions, try dimming the brightness of your monitor screen

4 Natural plants in your workspace can increase humidity as well as control dust and other irritating particles.

5 Consider Your Purpose before Buying a Monitor

6 Invest in a flat screen model. Flat screens of any kind provide a much more graphically sound image than those on the old curved screens. Flat screen CRTs offer better refresh rates and a richer palette of contrast and color adjustments.

Flat panel desktop monitors offer the best image for a range of prices.

7 Invest in a laptop.

8 Configure your computer’s graphics settings for optimal visual comfort.

9 Reduce your chances for eye strain by placing your monitor appropriately:

10 ...Opt for an additional privacy feature and models with an anti-static coating that repel dust and other particulate matter. Polarized shields offer top of the line protection. Adjust To Your Specific Work Requirements

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
