Be sure to schedule your annual eye exam. This is one of the best ways to prevent eye strain. Your optometrist will be able to find any changes in vision and recommend computer, reading or regular glasses based on your overall needs.

A quick and easy way to reduce eye strain when working from a computer is to position your monitor below eye level at a 10 to 15 degree angle. If possible, adjust lighting so that there is minimal glare reflecting into your eyes and try to position yourself 20-24 inches away from the monitor.
