If you are someone who has a job, then you must know how much eye strain there can be while staring at the screen. Majority of the population uses computers and laptops to do their jobs because – well, it is convenient for all. With the dynamic shifting to the work from home environment, the time staring at the screen can cause a strain in the eye.
Work from home doesn’t mean that you can have meetings, conferences, quick getaways at the water dispenser or getting together with coworkers around a table. These little getaways make it a little easier to take some time off from the screen life and have a quick check-in with your colleague. Now the emphasis on digital media and online meeting platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Skype and Hangouts means there is more screen time than before.
According to a study, 59 percent of adults have experienced digital eye strain which is a strain caused by looking at the screen all the time. The symptoms include visual disturbances or eye-related discomfort. Looking at the screen of a computer, laptop, tablet or phone is very harmful.
As time increases, the exposure to the harmful rays also increases a lot. However, you can take an initiative and do something about this digital discomfort. Take a look at the following infographic for detailed information on the preventive measures in eye strain at work.
