Most of us spend an inordinate amount of time gazing at our computer terminals, whether at work or at home. Eye fatigue or strain is often the result, but it’s not restricted to staring at a computer screen—reading a book or magazine, watching TV, or working on a craft project can also strain your eyes. Read on to find out more about preventing eye fatigue.
Eye fatigue occurs whenever you focus your eyes on a close object for an extended period of time. This happens because your eye muscles must work harder to view an object closer than about six metres, or 20 feet. While it can be a nuisance, there is no indication it can lead to permanent damage.
If you have trouble keeping your eyes open while working at a computer, you may have eyestrain. Other symptoms can include a sore neck, headaches, blurred near vision, or trouble changing focus (from a close to distant object, for example).
