TEMPORARY COMPLAINTS GO AWAY WHEN COMPUTER USE IS DECOMMISSIONED

A professor who noted that research found 50-90 percent of eye complaints in those who use a digital screen Dr. Lightning said the ailments appeared in the form of fatigue in the eye, around the eyes and headaches, neck and shoulder pains. Prof. Dr. “When using a computer, the eyes are constantly focused close and at the same time move up and down to right and left. These movements and close focus tire the eye muscles, causing complaints such as pain, fatigue around the eyes and eyes. In the morning, there are usually no such complaints, starting later. It passes with rest, returns to normal over the weekend.

Disorders such as impaired color perception, blurred vision, double vision, shaded vision, and difficulty focusing can develop. These are usually temporary complaints, which are corrected by themselves when the computer is decommissioned. Long-term use of devices can create a myopic refractive error, especially in children,” was said.

THOSE WHO STAY IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTER FOR LONG TIME SHOULD CHECK WITH AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST IN TURKEY

The rays emitted from the computers are immeasurably low or below the recommended safety limits, which does not cause permanent eye damage. Turkey Dr. made the following recommendations to protect eye health:

  • Uncorrected visual disorders, lack of ergonomic computer and working environment, lack of lighting increases the negative effects that the computer does in the eye, so those who stay in the face of the computer for a long time due to their work should definitely check with the ophthalmologist regularly.
    .
  • If there are eye defects such as hypermetropia, myopia or astigmatism, eye fatigue will increase even more after computer use. Corrective glasses recommended by an ophthalmologist should be used.
    .
  • Those who have to work on the computer for a long time can set an alarm and take a short tour of the room every hour and correct their posture and move away from the screen with yawning movements.
    .
  • Separating the eyes from the screen twice an hour and looking far away will relax the eye muscles, easing the formation of pain and eye fatigue.
    .
  • 20-20-20 rule can be applied. Looking at an object 20 feet (6 meters) away every 20 minutes for 20 seconds prevents eye fatigue.

.
WIDESCREEN SHOULD BE PREFERRED ON DESKTOP COMPUTERS

  • Balance between screen brightness and room lighting must be achieved to increase visibility. Reducing screen brightness can disrupt image clarity and cause vibrations. Regular cleaning of the screen from dust both increases the visibility of the screen and prevents the development of eye allergies and infection in the user against these dusts. If a desktop computer is used, it is recommended that it be widescreen.
    .
  • When looking at the screen, the screen should not be seen as a light source, it should be similar to ambient lighting. Night mode applications that reduce blue light may be preferred. Precautions should be taken against glass or lamp reflections.

.
TEARS SHOULD BE USED AGAINST DRY EYES

  • The screen eye distance should be at least 60 centimeters. Eye complaints increase as you approach the screen. It is recommended to look at the screen as far away as possible. A 140-screen television should be watched from a distance of 2.5-3 meters.
    .
  • Glasses specially designed for those who look at a digital screen for more than 1 hour a day can mitigate the negative effects of the computer. If these glasses are antirefle and filter blue light, the feeling of fatigue in the eye will be less, as the sensitivity due to reflection and light will decrease.
    .
  • Looking at computer or other digital screens for a long time reduces the number of blinks. When the blink decreases, the protective tear film layer on the surface of the eye evaporates, leading to the feeling of dryness in the eye. Due to this, there is burning, stinging, itching, foreign body sensation and excessive watering in the eyes. Using artificial tears at certain intervals helps relieve these complaints.
