Ever heard of computer vision syndrome? This can occur due to multiple factors – poor workplace conditions, bad work habits, and of course visual disorders. If you’re reading this article to find some easy solutions to your eye issues, read along…
Here are five simple solutions for screen-related eye issues:
1. Eye Strain
Do you feel your eyes are achy, sore, and tired sometimes after you’ve worked for hours at a stretch in front of the computer? This happens due to the prolonged use of muscles that control your eye movements and pupils. It is also called asthenopia. If you tend to work in dimly lit room with the only source of light emitting from your phone or computer, this could severely affect your eyes, straining them.
So what’s the solution for this?
At first, you could try getting out in the open as frequently as you can during your breaks, preferably where there is ample natural light to get your eyes used to it. This way, your eyes will not face soreness from focusing on the light that is coming out of a device. Secondly, take breaks. This is important for your eye health if your work revolves around being in front of the screen for most of the time. Keep the 20/20/20 rule in mind – that is, for every 20 minutes you work in front of a screen, close your eyes for 20 seconds or look at least 20 ft away from the screen or any device.
This could help you from experiencing headaches, double vision, red eyes, eye pain, and fatigue.
2. Blurry Vision
Sharpness in vision or the inability to see the small details, be it while reading or watching something is what blurred vision is all about. This occurs due to continuous usage of phone or computer and also constantly changing focus, such as looking back and forth between the keyboard and the computer screen.
However, do keep in mind, if you’re over 40 years of age and are facing blurry vision, it could also be because of presbyopia (difficulty in seeing near objects). This is often associated with aging and should not be confused with blurry vision that is caused because of prolonged use of computers and phones.

One of the common effects of looking at a computer or phone screen for a long time is a headache. Your phone or computer screen brightness and contrast does have a significant effect on your vision. The glare that is produced from the screen is almost always hard on the eyes. You may also get a headache if you sit facing a sunlit window and work on your computer. The light from the window that falls directly on your eyes causes eye strain and headaches.
Here’s An Easy Solution
Adjust the brightness and contrast levels of your phone and computer screens. If you want to take an extra step towards good eye care, invest in BLU eyewear like these on-trend and fashionable Brown Tortoise Gold Brown Full Rim Cat Eye Lenskart AIR Signia LA E12855-C4 or Gold Tortoise Full Rim Aviator Vincent Chase VC SLEEK STEEL VC E11792-C4 which will protect you from glare and the BLU light that emits from most of your screens.
4. Double Vision
Are you seeing double? Double vision or diplopia is the simultaneous perception of two images of a single object. It may so happen that your eyes are misaligned, or not pointed at one particular object causing us to see two visuals of the same. We suggest, if you have double vision, then get your eyes checked as it can cause problems such as a difficulty in completing simple tasks.
Here’s A Temporary Solution
While getting a pair of reading glasses like Black Half Rim Rectangle Vincent Chase VC E11059 C1 Reading Eyeglasses or trendy pair like Tortoise Full Rim Rectangle Vincent Chase VC E11058 C2 Reading Eyeglasses may help in alleviating the problem, double vision can be a sign of a severe vision, neurological, or life-threatening problem, hence we recommend a visit to the eye doctor ASAP!
5. Dry Eyes
Dry eyes occur when there is inadequate lubrication of the eye surface. A negligible moisture film on the eye surface can cause irritation, itching and soreness. This condition may also occur if you don’t produce enough tears or if you produce poor-quality tears. So, you may think crying is the best solution for this? Well, yes. Cry lots. Put on a sappy film every now and then or cut onions to refresh your eyes. But, if that doesn’t work, blink. Blinking is one of the fastest reflexes of the body, which replenishes moisture in the eye by causing artificial tears. Who knew science could be this wacky, huh? Alternatively, you could also get a bottle of good quality lubricating eye drops to use at regular intervals. Doing this will keep the surface of your eyes nice and moist.
