Hints on Eye Usage with Computers

The effects of VDU use on the eyes warrants special comment as computers are now very widely used, and due to their nature, can potentially impose a greater demand on the visual system than traditional office work. Generally speaking, computers allow us to achieve much more in various facets of life, however, they can become a significant cause of health problems, especially eyestrain. Computers allow us to perform many more functions over a shorter period of time, and it is for this reason, among others, that more intense concentration and focussing is required. If this is not appreciated and special preventive measures are not taken, a range of eyestrain and vision problems can occur.

Several eye muscles are involved in seeing clearly at near. There are internal muscles, which help to clear the vision for near objects, and there are external eye muscles, which help to align the eyes in the direction of gaze. These muscles can fatigue, just as any other muscle can fatigue, if used intensively for many hours in the day.
