I have been recently diagnosed of myopia and prescribed to wear specs. Yesterday, I worked on the computer for so long and it gave me headache. Does watching computer for so long affect your eye sight even though after wearing specs and will my vision change now?
yes it can affect ur eyes.really a common problem nowadays. See your eye doctor and get a computer vision correction that will help you focus more accurately and with less effort. When prescribed properly, these glasses also can help you read printed material with greater ease, and the lenses can have tints and coatings to make your eyes feel a lot better.taking frequent breaks (every 15-30 minutes) where you look at something real far away, like out a window, to relax your focusing muscles.You can also help yourself by making sure your work station is maximally efficient and comfortable — check out the lighting, height of your screen, angle of your screen, hand position, etc.To relieve some of the stresses and strains, make sure you look up and far away, preferably out a window or across a room, about every 15 minutes.Your monitor should be about 10-15 degrees below your eye level and tilted slightly away from you at the top, the way you would hold a book. You should adjust the screen contrast to be comfortable, and the room lighting shouldn't be too bright.take care
