Take time to make time to avoid visual stress while working on your computer. Time invested now will help improve visual efficiency and comfort for computer users. 

According to two Saginaw, Michigan Doctor's of optometry, James J. Hilligan and C. Steven Kocks, people who use computers often complain of headaches, near blurred vision, eyestrain, glare sensitivity, slowness in focusing, dry or irritates eyes, double vision, and neck, back or shoulder pain.  They say that most of these irritating conditions are preventable.  By spending a few minutes studying the environment in which you work, in most cases, you can make simple corrections that can save unnecessary discomfort.  

Begin by paying attention to your work environment and posture.  Try to keep in mind:  it is easier to focus when looking downward.  If possible, keep the computer screen below eye level.  For the greatest comfort, the screen should be 10 to 20 degrees below straight-ahead line of sight.  Any unnecessary eye and head movement may create head or neck aches.  Also, keep reference material close to the computer screen.  Experts in equipment design for human comfort, technically known as Ergonomists, say people adjust their bodies so the eyes always win.  So, keep your body posture aimed at whatever you are looking at.  

These suggestions are the first installment of six by the doctors.  For the next several Tuesdays, we'll cover more time and visual stress management tips for you while working at your computer.  Try these out, and then meet me here again next week.
