Majority of computer users suffer from the symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) and a study shows that prolonged sitting while at your desks can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. 

Some common symptoms of CVS include red eyes, eye strain, double vision, head aches and difficulty refocusing eyes. 

Here are some tips that can help keep your eyes healthy:

Take a short break from your computer screen at least once every 30 minutes and ensure that you move and look away from screen.

  • Once in a while clean your computer screen.
  • Make a conscious effort for blinking regularly.
  • Air conditions and fans worsen the dry-eye symptoms of CVS, so keep in mind the environmental factors as well. 
  • Drink plenty of water. It will keep you hydrated. 
  • Flickering computer screens only worsen CVS. Get rid of that as soon as possible.
  • Spend some time optimizing the angle, height and distance of your screen. 
  • Finally, have an eye examination.
