Corporate Eye Care
Why Corporate Eye Care is Critical
Exposure to the computer screen over a length of time causes Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which manifests in varying degrees of eye strain, blurred vision, red eyes and related symptoms. To test the extent of damage, make sure to visit your company’s eye camp for employees to get a check up.
For those under 40, CVS may be triggered by the inability of the eyes to remain focused on computer screens, and the frequent shifting of focus from the keyboard to the screen and vice versa – over a long period of time.
For those over 40, CVS is generally triggered by presbyopia – age-related loss of near vision.
Must-do for Corporate Eye Care
Get your eyes checked every six months. Don’t forget to tell your eye expert at the eye camp how often you use the computer and digital devices, and how far your eyes are from the screen when you work on the computer.
Ensure there is no harsh daylight and indoor lighting when you are working on the computer. Avoid overhead fluorescent lighting.
Install and anti-glare screen on your computer. Ensure you have anti-reflective coating on your glasses – if you use spectacles or a pair of spectacles that protect you from harmful blue light. Ask your optometrist at your corporate eye care camp about how to protect your eyes better.
Work on computers with flat-panel LED screens with an anti-reflective surface. Replace your old screen right away, if need to.
Change settings to ensure comfort
Brightness of your computer screen should be the same as that of your surroundings. Work in a font size that does not strain your eyes; best to use black lettering on a white background to ease of working. Reduce the ‘colour temperature’ or harmful blue light emitted by your screen.
