13 Tips to Prevent Eye Fatigue

Reviewed by Whitney Seltman on September 11, 2020

Your eyes are burning, itchy, and tired. It’s a common condition but rarely serious. You can take simple steps to prevent or ease this problem.

It those tactics don’t work, see your doctor. What you’re feeling could be a sign of a deeper condition that requires treatment. This is especially important if you have headaches or other problems like:

Eye discomfort

Double vision

A big change in vision

What Causes It?

Anything that requires intense eye use can cause fatigue. Some of the most common are:

Reading (especially on a screened device)

Writing

Driving

If you look at bright light or spend time in a place that’s too dim, it can also tire your peepers.

Your eyes might get tired easily if you stare for long periods at a computer, smartphone, or game console. The eye doctor might call this computer vision syndrome or digital eye strain. It affects most people who use one. Some estimates say computer-related eye symptoms may be responsible for up to 10 million eye doctor visits a year. The problem is expected to grow as more people use smartphones and other handheld digital devices, which force your eyes to work harder than usual as they strain to focus on tiny words.

Digital devices may also be linked to eye fatigue because you tend to blink less often when looking at a computer screen. People usually blink about 18 times a minute. This naturally refreshes the eyes. But studies suggest that people only blink about half as often while looking at a computer or other digital device. This can result in dry, tired, itchy, and burning eyes.

What Are the Symptoms?

Be on the lookout for:

Sore or irritated eyes

Trouble focusing

Dry or watery eyes

Blurred or double vision

Increased sensitivity to light

Pain in the neck, shoulders, or back

These symptoms can lower your productivity. If you stay awake for long hours working, you can make the problem worse. Sleep refreshes your eye with essential nutrients. Lack of sleep may lead to repeated eye irritation.

How Can You Prevent Eye Fatigue?

Make some simple changes to:

Your computer screen:

Place it 20-26 inches away from your eyes and a little below eye level.

Regularly clean off dust and fingerprints from the surface. Smudges can reduce contrast and create problems like glare and reflections.

Choose screens that tilt and swivel.

Use a glare filter for your screen.

Your work environment:

Change lighting to get rid of glare and harsh reflections.

Use an adjustable chair.

Place a document holder next to your computer screen.

Your work habits:

Try the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look at something about 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Post a note that says "Blink" on your computer as a reminder.

Take regular breaks from computer work.

Your eye-care routine:

Apply a washcloth soaked in warm water to tired, dry eyes (keep your eyes closed).

Use artificial tears to refresh your eyes when they feel dry.

To help prevent dry eyes while indoors, use an air cleaner to filter dust and a humidifier to add moisture to the air.

If you have eye fatigue or pain, see an eye doctor to make sure a deeper medical condition isn’t to blame.

If the problem doesn’t go away, make an appointment for a full eye exam. The doctor can make sure your symptoms aren’t linked to a problem like an eye muscle imbalance or dry eye. They can also tell if your glasses or contact lens prescription is up to date and good for computer use.

How to Prevent Tired Eyes In some conditions, it is unavoidable to use the eyes continuously, especially if it is related to work. However, you can prevent eye fatigue in the following ways: 1. Adjust the lighting and the position of the computer screen In order to prevent eye fatigue, you can adjust the lighting on the computer or device used. In addition, ensure that you always maintain a safe viewing distance between the screen and your eyes, which is about 50–66 cm. You can also use a chair that can be adjusted its position so that the distance between the eyes and the computer screen is maintained. 2. Set the room lighting Try to keep the room lighting not too bright and dazzling. If you use a room lamp or table lamp that is bright enough, you can lower the level of light on your computer or device. Vice versa. 3. Rest your eyes regularly When using the computer, reading, or driving a vehicle, it is recommended that you take occasional breaks. Every 20 minutes of working, rest your eyes for at least 20 seconds. 4. Perform regular eye care Eye fatigue can also be prevented with treatments, such as compressing the eyes with a cloth soaked in warm water or using eye drops to freshen the eyes when the eyes feel dry. 5. Choose the right glasses or contact lenses If you must wear glasses or contact lenses, choose one that is specifically designed to work in front of a computer screen or gadget. You can first consult with an ophthalmologist to determine the right glasses or contact lenses. In addition, clean air can also prevent dry eyes that cause fatigue. Therefore, try not to smoke in the workspace so that the indoor air remains clean. How to deal with tired eyes If eye fatigue can no longer be prevented, there are several ways to treat it, including: Close your eyes and massage your temples for a few minutes to reduce eye fatigue. Increase the computer screen resolution and reduce room lighting. Adjust the distance, contrast, and font size on the gadget. Look away from the computer screen or gadget for a few moments. Stretch your arms, legs, shoulders and back to reduce fatigue in your body. Use eye drops or a warm compress to treat dry eyes caused by fatigue.

Having ample light when performing certain tasks, like reading or sewing, can help reduce strain and eye fatigue. Place your light behind you when performing any sort of close work and position it therefore the light is directed onto your task.

A lamp shade on a light-weight positioned ahead of you is best if you’re working or reading at a desk. The key's to possess sufficient lighting without having it shine directly into your eyes.

If you’re watching TV, soft or dim lighting within the room are going to be easier on your eyes.

Lifestyle and home remedies
Consider these tips to reduce or prevent eyestrain.

Adjust the lighting. When watching television, it may be easier on your eyes if you keep the room softly lit.

When reading printed materials or doing close work, try to position the light source behind you and direct the light onto your page or task. If you're reading at a desk, use a shaded light positioned in front of you. The shade will keep light from shining directly into your eyes.

Take breaks. When doing close work, take occasional breaks and rest your eyes by looking away from the digital screen.
Limit screen time. This is especially important for children, who may not make the connection between extended viewing, eyestrain and the need to rest their eyes regularly.
Use artificial tears. Over-the-counter artificial tears can help prevent and relieve dry eyes. Use them even when your eyes feel fine to keep them well-lubricated and prevent a recurrence of symptoms.

Your doctor can suggest which eyedrops might be best for you. Lubricating drops that don't contain preservatives can be used as often as you need. If the drops you're using contain preservatives, don't use them more than four times a day. Avoid eyedrops with a redness remover, as these may worsen dry eye symptoms.

Improve the air quality of your space. Some changes that may help prevent dry eyes include using a humidifier, adjusting the thermostat to reduce blowing air and avoiding smoke. If you smoke, consider quitting. Moving your chair to a different area may help reduce the amount of dry moving air on your eyes and face.
Choose the right eyewear for you. If you need glasses or contacts and work at a computer, consider investing in glasses or contact lenses designed specifically for computer work. Ask your optometrist about lens coatings and tints that might help too.
and if you use computer too often
Blink often to refresh your eyes. Many people blink less than usual when working at a computer, which can contribute to dry eyes. Blinking produces tears that moisten and refresh your eyes. Try to make it a habit to blink more often when looking at a monitor.
Take eye breaks. Throughout the day, give your eyes a break by looking away from your monitor. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.
Check the lighting and reduce glare. Bright lighting and too much glare can strain your eyes and make it difficult to see objects on your monitor. The worst problems are generally from sources above or behind you, including fluorescent lighting and sunlight. Consider turning off some or all of the overhead lights.

If you need light for writing or reading, use an adjustable desk lamp. Close blinds or shades, and avoid placing your monitor directly in front of a window or white wall. Place an anti-glare cover over the screen.

Adjust your monitor. Position your monitor directly in front of you about an arm's length away so that the top of the screen is at or just below eye level. It helps to have a chair you can adjust too.
Use a document holder. If you need to refer to print material while you work on your computer, place it on a document holder. Some holders are designed to be placed between the keyboard and monitor; others are placed to the side. Find one that works for you. The goal is to reduce how much your eyes need to readjust and how often you turn your neck and head.
Adjust your screen settings. Enlarge the type for easier reading. And adjust the contrast and brightness to a level that's comfortable for you.

treatment
In general, the treatment for eyestrain is to make changes to your daily habits or the environment in which you live. Some people may need treatment for basic eye conditions.
For some people, wearing glasses prescribed for certain activities, such as using a computer or reading, helps reduce eye strain. Your doctor may suggest regular eye exercises to help your eyes focus at different distances.
Lifestyle and home remedies
Consider the following tips to reduce or prevent eyestrain.

Adjust the brightness level. When you watch TV, it may be better and easier for your eyes to keep the room lighting simple.

When reading prints or reading closely, try to place the light source behind you and direct the light onto your page or what you are reading. If you are reading at a desk, use shaded lighting and keep it placed in front of you. This will prevent the light from shining directly into your eyes.

Take a break. When you do close-up work, take occasional breaks and relax your eyes by looking away from the digital screen.
Reduce the amount of time you watch TV, etc. This is especially important for children, as they do not associate prolonged viewing periods with eye strain and the need to rest their eyes regularly.
Use artificial tears. Nonprescription artificial tears can help prevent dry eyes and relieve dry eyes. Use artificial tears when your eyes are in good condition and are not tired, and this is to keep them hydrated and prevent symptoms from recurring.

Your doctor may suggest eye drops that may be appropriate for you. Lubricant drops without preservatives can be used as often as needed. If the drops you are using contain a preservative, do not use them more than four times a day. Avoid using eye drops that contain redness remover, as they can worsen dry eyes symptoms.

Work to improve the air quality where you sit. Some of the changes that may contribute to reducing dry eyes include: using a humidifier, adjusting the temperature to reduce air, and avoiding smoking. If you smoke, consider quitting. Moving your seat to a different area may help reduce the amount of dry air blowing into your eyes and face.
Choose the right glasses for you. If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses and work on a computer, consider eyeglasses or contact lenses that are specially designed for work at a computer. Ask your optician about lens coatings and dyes that might work for you as well.
Tips for working with a computer
Computer use is a common cause of eyestrain. If you work at a desk and use a computer, these personal care steps can help relieve some of the pressure on your eyes.

Try to blink your eyes every now and then to refresh your eyes. Many people blink less than usual when working at computers, and this leads to dry eyes. Blinking helps produce tears that moisturize and refresh your eyes. Make blinking your eyes a habit you do over and over again when you look at a screen.
Take breaks to rest your eyes. Throughout the day, rest your eyes by looking away from your screen. Follow the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look at anything 20 feet away from you for at least 20 seconds.
Check the lighting and reduce the intensity. Bright lighting and too much brightness can make it difficult for you to see what is displayed on your screen. The worst issues here are generally lighting from above and behind you, including fluorescent lights and sunlight. Consider turning off some or all of the overhead lights.

If you need lighting to write or read, use an adjustable desk lamp. Close blinds and avoid placing your screen directly in front of a window or white wall. Place an anti-glare cover on the screen.

Adjust your screen. Position your monitor directly in front of you and an arm's length away from you, with the top of it at or below eye level. An adjustable chair can also help here.
Use a paper holder. If you need to look at printed materials while working on your computer, place them on a paper stand. Some of these stands are designed to fit between the keyboard and the screen, while others can be placed next to them. Find out what works for you. The goal is to reduce the need for your eyes to recalibrate and the number of times you move your neck and head.
Adjust your screen settings. Increase the writing font to make it easier for you to read. Adjust contrast and brightness to your comfort level.
Alternative medicine
It might relieve some of the symptoms of eye strain by using natural products, such as cranberry extract and the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, but more research is needed. Talk to your doctor if you are considering nutritional supplements to help relieve your signs and symptoms.

Get ready for your appointment
If you experience eye fatigue, headache, or vision changes that do not improve with self-care, make an appointment with your doctor.

Here's some information to help you get ready for your appointment.

What can you do?
Write down any symptoms you've been feeling and for how long
Write down your key medical information, including any other medical conditions, and any medications, vitamins and supplements you're taking.
Keep a daily log of time you spend performing activities that strain your eyes, such as looking at digital devices, reading and exposure to bright light.
Write down questions to ask your doctor. Preparing a list of questions can help you make the most of your time with your doctor.
For eyestrain, some basic questions to ask your doctor include:

What could be causing my signs and symptoms?
What are other possible causes?
Do I need to do some tests to confirm the diagnosis?
What treatment approach do you recommend?
What changes can I make to my work or home environment, including my computer desk, to reduce my symptoms?

Eye strain is diagnosed on the basis of the history that the patient provides and the absence of any serious eye disease.

Eye strain is extremely common. As computer use has become commonplace, more people are experiencing what has been termed "computer vision syndrome," which is synonymous with eye strain. In most of these people, the symptoms are mild and they are aware that their feelings of the eyes being "tired" can be relieved by briefly closing their eyes and taking a break from the visual task they are performing. The symptoms will often be absent or markedly reduced on days when computer use is more limited.
If you experience eye strain while working at your computer, increasing the resolution of your screen (CRT) and reducing ambient lighting may be helpful. Adjusting the distance of your eyes from both the computer screen and your reading material may also relieve your symptoms

Having ample light when performing certain tasks, such as reading or sewing, can help reduce strain and eye fatigue. Place your light source behind you when performing any type of close work and position it so the light is directed onto your task.

A lamp shade on a light positioned in front of you is best if you’re working or reading at a desk. The key is to have sufficient lighting without having it shine directly into your eyes.

If you’re watching TV, soft or dim lighting in the room will be easier on your eyes.

Droopy tired eyes, only look good on Eyore. If you’re like the majority of the population, you spend a lot of your day staring at your computer screen, phone screen, or tablet, which can leave your eyes feeling tired and like you need a nap. Although a daily nap might be nice, it’s usually not feasible. In order to help you deal with fatigued eyes, try these three suggestions.

1. 20-20-20 Rule
One of the best ways to deal with eye fatigue is to participate in the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes look up from your screen and stare 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This will help to reduce eye fatigue and see more clearly.

tired eyes2. Reduce Glare
Glare on your screen can cause you to constantly be straining your eyes in order to properly read text or hone in on an image. However, by reducing the glare, you can help to lower the strain on your eyes and leave you feeling a bit more comfortable. In order to reduce the glare on your screen, consider the following:

a. Add a glare screen over your computer. These customized screens are meant for this very purpose— to reduce glare. Which can help alleviate much of the eye strain
b. Fix Overhead Lighting- as a main contributor to glares on screens, overhead lighting can easily be fixed. Harsh neon lighting can give your eyes an added strain that can be damaging. However, soft white lights will help you to lower the amount of strain you have to inflict on your eyes every day.
3. Go For Walks
If you’re a believer in pushing through your work all day so that you can go home right at 5, you might want to reconsider these techniques. By getting up every few hours and taking a quick 15 minute walk, you can help your eyes feel less tired, more alert, and ready to take on more screen time.

50-90% of Americans suffer from some sort of eye fatigue syndrome, which leads them in the eye doctors chair. If you suffer from eye fatigue, try the above three tips and see if they help to improve your comfort level.

You should treat any eye pain as an emergency. Almost always, the right treatment for eye pain is to schedule an eye examination immediately from an optician near your home. Only an eye care professional can determine the exact cause of your eye pain and determine the right treatment to prevent eye damage and possibly permanent vision loss.

Specifically, if you have eye pain and:

Show your optician immediately if that has occurred immediately after grinding metal, cutting wood, or other activities that could cause injury due to an alien element (especially if you were not wearing safety glasses or protective eyewear).

The pain is caused by an eye injury.

The pain is severe and is accompanied by blurred vision and / or sensitivity to light.

You have recently undergone eye surgery, which includes LASIK (LASIK) and cataract surgery.

You have redness and leakage in your eyes.

The pain is severe, started suddenly, and you have a history of glaucoma. This may indicate an acute attack of a less common form of cataract called angle-closure cataract, which can cause rapid vision loss and is a medical emergency.

When it comes to eye pain, don't take the risk - see an optician as soon as possible to determine the exact cause of the pain and get the right treatment for eye pain.

13 Tips to Prevent Eye Fatigue
Reviewed by Whitney Seltman, OD on September 11, 2020
Your eyes are burning, itchy, and tired. It’s a common condition but rarely serious. You can take simple steps to prevent or ease this problem.

It those tactics don’t work, see your doctor. What you’re feeling could be a sign of a deeper condition that requires treatment. This is especially important if you have headaches or other problems like:

Eye discomfort
Double vision
A big change in vision
What Causes It?
Anything that requires intense eye use can cause fatigue. Some of the most common are:


Reading (especially on a screened device)
Writing
Driving
If you look at bright light or spend time in a place that’s too dim, it can also tire your peepers.

Your eyes might get tired easily if you stare for long periods at a computer, smartphone, or game console. The eye doctor might call this computer vision syndrome or digital eye strain. It affects most people who use one. Some estimates say computer-related eye symptoms may be responsible for up to 10 million eye doctor visits a year. The problem is expected to grow as more people use smartphones and other handheld digital devices, which force your eyes to work harder than usual as they strain to focus on tiny words.

Digital devices may also be linked to eye fatigue because you tend to blink less often when looking at a computer screen. People usually blink about 18 times a minute. This naturally refreshes the eyes. But studies suggest that people only blink about half as often while looking at a computer or other digital device. This can result in dry, tired, itchy, and burning eyes.


What Are the Symptoms?
Be on the lookout for:

Sore or irritated eyes
Trouble focusing
Dry or watery eyes
Blurred or double vision
Increased sensitivity to light
Pain in the neck, shoulders, or back
These symptoms can lower your productivity. If you stay awake for long hours working, you can make the problem worse. Sleep refreshes your eye with essential nutrients. Lack of sleep may lead to repeated eye irritation.

How Can You Prevent Eye Fatigue?
Make some simple changes to:

Your computer screen:

Place it 20-26 inches away from your eyes and a little below eye level.
Regularly clean off dust and fingerprints from the surface. Smudges can reduce contrast and create problems like glare and reflections.
Choose screens that tilt and swivel.
Use a glare filter for your screen.
Your work environment:

Change lighting to get rid of glare and harsh reflections.
Use an adjustable chair.
Place a document holder next to your computer screen.
Your work habits:

Try the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look at something about 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
Post a note that says "Blink" on your computer as a reminder.
Take regular breaks from computer work.
Your eye-care routine:

Apply a washcloth soaked in warm water to tired, dry eyes (keep your eyes closed).
Use artificial tears to refresh your eyes when they feel dry.
To help prevent dry eyes while indoors, use an air cleaner to filter dust and a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
If you have eye fatigue or pain, see an eye doctor to make sure a deeper medical condition isn’t to blame.

If the problem doesn’t go away, make an appointment for a full eye exam. The doctor can make sure your symptoms aren’t linked to a problem like an eye muscle imbalance or dry eye. They can also tell if your glasses or contact lens prescription is up to date and good for computer use.

Eye strain is extremely common. As computer use has become commonplace, more people are experiencing what has been termed "computer vision syndrome," which is synonymous with eye strain. In most of these people, the symptoms are mild and they are aware that their feelings of the eyes being "tired" can be relieved by briefly closing their eyes and taking a break from the visual task they are performing. The symptoms will often be absent or markedly reduced on days when computer use is more limited.

Although eye strain is uncomfortable, there are no long-term consequences of eye strain. There is no evidence that eye strain causes any adverse changes in the eyes. There is also no evidence that, in adults, continuing to do visual tasks while experiencing eye strain will result in any structural damage to the eyes.

Place your television about 20-26 inches away from your eyes and a little below eye level.
Regularly clean off dust and fingerprints from the surface. Smudges can reduce contrast and create problems like glare and reflections.
Choose screens that tilt and swivel.
Use a glare filter for your screen.

If you have frequent headaches, your friends and relatives will definitely recommend that you see an ophthalmologist to check your eyes and check the number of glasses. But can eye problems really cause headaches?

A common but common misconception is that eye fatigue due to refractive errors or hidden eye aberrations is a common cause of headaches. Although refractive errors and hidden eye aberrations should be corrected if present, and sometimes correction can help improve the headache, in most cases the headache has nothing to do with the number of glasses. Of course, some eye diseases can cause headaches, and some types of headaches are associated with ocular symptoms, but in most people with headaches, the result of an eye examination is completely normal.

During the break, perform light eye exercises:

For 20 seconds, look into the distance, focus on the object that is located about 20 steps away from you;
Close your eyes and make four rotations with your eyeballs-first clockwise, then counterclockwise;
Without opening your eyelids, move your eyes up and down;
Complete the exercise by blinking frequently for 30 seconds. The gaze is directed forward.
To fix the effect, instill the eyes with moisturizing drops selected by an ophthalmologist. Do not self-medicate, be sure to seek help from a specialist-moisturizing drops come in different viscosities, they can have a therapeutic effect, or they can simply wet the surface of the eye. Only an ophthalmologist will determine what exactly your vision needs and select the necessary remedy.
