As mentioned yesterday, I’ve been having a flurry of blurry after not being in front of the computer last week and then working online every waking moment since Monday.
Was I going blind? I called my doctor to find out.
Given my recent nasal surgery and not using my eyes per regular, she said my strained vision was nothing unusual. I will see her again in two weeks to make sure everything is good. Her suggestions:
Make sure you computer monitor is below eye level. Our eyes generally read easier at a downward angle, rather than looking up.
Take breaks & close your eyes for 10 seconds. I guess everybody knows this once, but DO YOU DO IT? There is all this stuff that we’re supposed to do but unless I’m setting some kind of alarm on the hour, it may be hard to get in the habit of this one.
Exercises like the “floating hot dog” are fine. If you missed it, the floating hot dog was in yesterday’s video exercises. These won’t do you any harm, according to my doc, but they’re not as important as taking simple breaks.
