You're not the only who has eyes that hurt after long computer sessions

You're not the only who has eyes that hurt after long computer sessions

If you're spending much of your work day -- or even your leisure time -- in front of a computer, your vision may be at risk.

According to Dr. Allison Summers, an assistant professor of opthamology at OHSU, 9 of 10 people have reported some kind of irritation from staring at a screen.

Summers said to use the 20/20 rule.

"For every 20 minutes that you're doing work, take a 20 second break and look out a window or down across a room or down a hallway and let your eyes relax," she said.

Then every two hours, take a 15 minute break. If that doesn't work, eye drops might help. Properly setting up your desk is also important, the doctor said.
