How do I protect my eyes when using my computer?
By Jeandre de Beer updated by Emile Greyling
When using our computers for an extended period of time – our eyes can become sensitive and irritated.
What can you do to minimize these negative effects?
1. Clean your monitor on a regular basis.
Monitors can become dirty from dust and finger prints. Make sure the monitor is clean to reduce strain on your eyes – especially when reading text.
2. What is the ideal distance between your monitor and your eyes?
Though the size of the monitor does impact this… The best overall for proper viewing and reduction in eye strain is between 50cm and 75cm.
