Computer screens, contact lenses and your eyes

Most of us spend a fair few hours staring at a computer screen every day. We all know this can play havoc with our eyes. Choosing the right contact lenses will help keep your eyes feeling comfortable when you are using the computer.

Why computer screens are hard on your eyes

Computer screens can affect your eyes in a number of ways, including:

  • Reduced blink rate¹
  • Dry, irritated and red eyes
  • Eye strain and tired eyes
  • Blurred and variable vision

Contact lenses and computer screens

We blink about once every five seconds, which is 11,000 times a day! However, when we’re looking at a computer screen we blink less frequently or not as fully. In fact, studies show that when looking at a computer screen, we blink five times less than we should to keep our eyes moist and healthy.

Blinking is your body’s natural way of replenishing the tear film that keeps your eyes clean and moist. Blinking spreads the tears across your eyes, maintaining moisture and keeping foreign bodies from entering and irritating them.

If you wear contact lenses, you may notice the effects a computer screen has on your eyes even more. These tips will help to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable in front of the computer:

Reduce the glare

Avoid facing a window and ensure the room is well lit. The difference in brightness between your screen and the area behind it can cause eye stress and discomfort.

Adjust your seat

You should be looking just over the top of the monitor in your straight-ahead gaze.

Blink frequently

Making a conscious effort to blink often and fully will help to keep your contact lenses moist.

Take a break

Take a 20-second break every 20 minutes. Focus your eyes at least six metres from your terminal. Keep your eyes moving while looking at objects at various distances.

Drink lots of water!

Drink lots of water to keep as hydrated as possible.
