Wellbeing Advice

One of the most common effects of staring at back-lit screen for long periods of time is eye strain. Symptoms of eye strain include:
Dry eyes
Blurred vision
This happens for two reasons. The first is that when we look at a screen, our blink rate drops by about 50%. Blinking is what keeps our eyes hydrated, and not doing so can result in a dry, gritty feeling. the second is muscle fatigue. If focus is maintained for long periods, the muscles controlling the lens can become overworked and tired.
