Eye strain related to reading computer screens is sometimes called "digital eye strain." What can you do about it?

According to Kondrot (2014) these simple things might help:

  • Taking a break
  • "Palming" your eyes
  • Blinking more frequently
  • Wearing computer glasses
  • Keeping your monitor bright
  • Increasing the light
  • Checking your computer position
