Computer eye strain perhaps isn’t something you think about a lot, but once it affects you, it’s hard not to notice.

Protecting eyes from computer screens and smartphones is more important than ever, but effectively tackling the problem is more about prevention than treatment.

Simple preventative measures help protect eyes from computer screens and smartphones, and we’re going to take a look at a few of those measures in this article.

Simple eye exercises:

Look as far as possible for 3-5 seconds, then look as close as possible for 3-5 seconds. Rest for a few seconds, and then repeat this sequence several times.

Make sure to roll slowly – at least 3 seconds to a full circle. If you are indoors, look out the window to find a distant object and focus.
