Constant use of computers and other electronic devices could cause ‘Computer Vision Syndrome’: blurry vision, headaches, dry eyes and possible long-term near-sightedness.

/>So how do we cope in this digital world, when we’ve to spend the entire day staring at screens?

/>

/>Eyewear manufacturer Mezzmer has created an infographic that gives you tips and tricks on how to ease the strain on your eyes.

/>

/>In the infographic ‘Healthy Eyes in a Digital World’, it states that you should sit 20 to 26 inches away from the screen, with the center of the screen 4 to 6 inches below your eyes, and tilted back (you should be looking slightly downward).

/>

/>You should also adjust the text size on your screen, and use the right brightness and contrast so you don’t have to squint.

/>

/>Keep to the 20-20-20 rule: after every 20-minutes of computer usage, take a 20-second break, and look at something 20-feet away.

/>

/>Although bad for your eyes, the digital world is also useful.

/>

/>Smartphones and other technology are making it easier for us to diagnose and treat eyesight issues, according to the infographic.

/>

/>In the future, bionic ‘smart’ contact lenses would be available that lets you monitor health, dispense medicine into your eyes, check your messages and such.
