Computer Users Need Eyes Tested

If you spend a large part of your life in front of a computer screen, then you are in danger of a condition known as Computer Eye Fatigue.

This is the warning from the Optometrists Association of Australia (OAA) and the organisation warns that office workers are particularly at risk of suffering from deteriorating eye health and vision problems caused by prolonged computer use.

In fact, some studies indicate that as many as 48 percent of office workers suffer from the disorder, which causes vision problems and deterioration of eye health.

Symptoms include sore, red eyes associated with computer use, headaches that become more severe when staring at a computer screen, and blurred distance vision after work.

It also recommends that everybody, particularly office workers, should have an eye exam every two years

The OAA recommends that workers who spend a large amount of time focusing on a computer screen take regular two-minute breaks away from their desks, ideally every hour.

It also recommends that everybody, particularly office workers, should have an eye exam every two years.
