The results are in from a online survey sponsored by the American Optometric Association. It seems that men and women seem to see the world differently – at least when it comes to reporting computer eyestrain. Source: www.medicinenet.com
The numbers are relatively close. Fifty-nine percent of men compared to 53% of women say that they have vision problems from spending too much time looking at a screen. Over 50% of all respondents say that they take breaks every half hour or hour, but women are more likely to take a break every 20 minutes.
Less than 20% of people do take breaks every 20 minutes as we at Natural Eye Care recommend to prevent computer eyestrain.
Other tips to ward off computer eyestrain:
- Frequently look at something more than 20 feet away.
- Blink regularly to keep your eyes moist.
