Are You Getting Eye Strain?

If you are spending to much time on the computer in Facebook, reading news or chatting online. If this sounds like you then you most likely it has left you with blurred vision or even a headache. A great treatment would be to place your thumbs on both sides of the bridge of your nose and apply a little pressure. Do this for approximately 1 minute. This will release the pressure and relax the muscles and allow the stress or blurred vision to subside. It is also know as a form of accupressure and has worked great for me.

Our eyes and vision were designed for viewing distance as hunters and gatherers, and not for ongoing near work as required by regular computer use. As a result, Computer Eye Strain is becoming one of the major eye complaints heard by eye doctors today.

Symptoms can include increased myopia, blurred vision, headaches, slow refocusing, difficulty concentrating, neck, shoulder and back pain

Eye strain can be reduced significantly by taking regular breaks from the computer, resting your eyes, stretching and doing eye exercises.
