Ways to de-stress your eyes at work

Do your eyes feel tired, irritated or dry after spending too much time on your computer? Many people who use computers complain of eye strain. Your eyes bear the maximum stress of your day-to-day lives. Eye strain is caused due to lack of movement when we stare at screens for a long time. Much the same as the body needs unwinding and work out, so do our eyes. Here are a few tips to keep your eyes relaxed and healthy.

Shut your eyes every now and then:
The best eye relaxation method is to rub your palms till they get warm and then placing them on your eyes for sometime. Another practice is to periodically shut your eyes and open them after every 5-10 seconds. This helps release the pressure on eyes. Blinking can also help moisten the eyes.

Take your eyes off the computer:
Take few breaks from looking continuously at your computer screen. This can be done every 20-30 minutes. This will help prevent dry eyes, headaches and blurry vision. Make sure you keep a distance of at least 50-60 cms between your eyes and the computer screen and there is adequate light in the room.

Move your eyeballs:
Rotate your eyeballs in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction at least 7-10 times a day.

Keep taking regular breaks:
Spending longer hours in an air-conditioned room tend to dry up your eyes. To avoid this, you can step out and take in as much fresh air as possible. Drinking plenty of water also hydrates the eyes and keeps them moist.

Play focus your gaze games:
When you get a little time off, fix your gaze on one spot on the wall and then shift your gaze beyond it and finally stare at the same spot again. You could also take a pen from your desk, hold it far and gradually move it toward you, all the while keeping your gaze fixed on the pen.

Cool off:

Look outside and absorb the greenery beyond your window every once in few hours to take a break from the harmful rays of the computer screen. You can also relax in a dimly lit room and if required, use eye drops recommended by your doctor.


Try an anti-glare computer screen:

You can get an anti-reflective coating on your computer screen and if you wear glasses, get an anti-reflective coating on them to help eliminate harmful rays from the computer.
