Protect Your Eyes from the Harm of the Screen

In this article, we will talk about simple solutions that architects, students or anyone who has to use computers for a long time should do to protect their eye health.

As it is known, as technology became more and more established in our lives and became one of the most important tools of our lives, we started to spend most of our daily lives on screens. In addition to the fact that screens make our work easier, many health problems such as eye fatigue, stinging eyes, bloodshot eyes, blurred vision, dry eyes have begun to occur with long-term use. Let’s examine the rules to be taken into consideration with simple solutions to avoid these problems and take precautions.

Let’s talk about these measures:

The visual angle and sitting position should be suitable for working and the computer screen should be between 20 and 30 degrees below eye level. We should not get too close to the screen, we should look at it from a distance of 50-60 centimeters. In addition, standing upright is very beneficial for back muscles and spinal cord health, as well as increasing the oxygen to the brain and allowing you to work for longer periods of time without getting bored. On laptops, you can increase the screen height by placing a book under the computer.

Reduce your screen brightness and try to use it as low as possible and as comfortable as possible. The main cause of bloodshot eyes and insomnia is screen brightness.

Blue light is the other big danger. The blue light emitted from screens is very tiring on the eyes because it emits high frequency and high energy. As a result of research, it has been found that it reduces the release of melatonin hormone and causes insomnia. Taking precautions against blue light is quite simple. While it is possible to reduce and change this from the night light settings, the application I would recommend is F.lux (https://justgetflux.com). With this application, you can reduce the blue light and lower the color temperature of the monitor without noticing it as the weather gets dark. In this way, you can adjust the color according to the brightness of the weather. Additionally, making the same settings on other screens such as your phone will be very beneficial for your eye health.

Note: Although it may yellow the screen a little, it is not noticeable as you get used to it in a short time. However, when editing images and preparing layouts, do not forget to close the application so that the colors can be perceived well.

Rest your intraocular muscles. In order to be seen closely, the muscles inside the eye adapt to increase the refractive power of the lens inside the eye. During long-term work, muscles can get tired and cause pain. To eliminate this, you can rest your intraocular muscles that work in harmony by looking at long distances whenever you get the opportunity.

Close and open your eyes frequently. Many people forget to close their eyes when they focus on working without realizing it. Close your eyes frequently to prevent your eyes from drying out and getting moist.

Increase the monitor refresh rate. Screen refresh, refresh rate (hertz) is the number of times your monitor updates with new images every second. It usually consists of values ​​such as 45 Hz, 60 Hz, 120 Hz, 144 Hz. High screen refresh rates deliver a smoother and softer image. The higher this value is, the more frequently your screen dims and turns on, which is very important for protecting your eye health. So how can we increase this value?

First, type view advanced image information in the Windows search bar.

Then respectively;

  • Click on display adapter properties.
  • From here click on the Monitor tab.
  • Set the last screen refresh rate setting to the highest value.

That’s all, take care of your health while continuing your work…
