The interesting thing to note here is that research has established that computer monitors emit hazardous radiation, little or nothing, as X-rays or ultraviolet rays. As fatigue is not directly caused by exposure to the computer screen, but rather by the environment surrounding the computer screen, such as poor lighting or incorrect positioning of the computer equipment and furniture. Excessive strain on the eyes - Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) - can lead to itchy or burning eyes, blurred or double vision and headaches. All these symptoms can lead to frustration, irritation and increased inability to complete the job as efficiently as they could, without proper eye care.1.

3. Computer Glasses: moderate to severe eye fatigue, may need some glasses and cylindrical refractive errors may have to be corrected. If you work several hours a day, you may need glasses or goggles numbered coated PC that give the eyes a break while working on computer
4. Avoid contact lenses: Avoid wearing contact lenses while working on the computer, they tend to worsen dry eyes.
5. Keeping distance: Keep a good distance from the computer screen. Sitting around 22 to 28 inches away from her. Sitting too close or too much can increase the strain on the eyes and cause eye fatigue
6. Keeping level: The center of the computer screen should be 4-5 inches below your eyes. The best thing is to look at a computer screen in a downward gaze. This position helps the lids to cover most of the eyes and you can still see normally with less surface exposure and drying tears.
