Eye on Wellness: Optimizing Your Workspace
Setting up your work space strategically is important for productivity, as well as preserving your overall physical health. More specifically, your eye health is most at risk if you’re spending most of your day at your office desk or staring at your screens.
Whether you wear reading glasses or not, there are a few easy measures you can take to make your work space more cozy while practicing preventive eye care.
Read below to learn about the steps you can take to optimize your workspace for optimal eye health!
How To Optimize Your Workspace For Eye Health:
Screen Placement: Your screen should be around two feet (or 24 inches) away from your eyes. A slight decline of approximately 15 degrees allows for an easier resting position for your eyes.
Proper Lighting: Plenty of overhead lighting will help prevent possible eye strain caused by prolonged use of your screen, so if you’re trying to avoid needing reading glasses, you’ll want to keep your area well lit.
Zoom in: Reduce the risk of eye strain by changing your zoom settings to a comfortable reading size. If close-up reading still poses difficulties, you may have presbyopia, and could benefit from a pair of reading glasses. Check out our guide on how to pick the best pair of readers for you!
Take Frequent Breaks: Avoid dry eyes by practicing the 20-20-20 rule. Take 20 second breaks every 20 minutes by focusing your eyes on an object 20 feet away. This goes for all people, regardless of whether you wear reading glasses or not.
- Fight Blue Light: Outsmart the harmful effects caused by the artificial blue light emitted from your screens by wearing Blue Light Blocking Reading Glasses when you work.
