Does looking at a computer screen all day have negative effects on your eyes?

    Yes!  It can cause something called “computer vision syndrome,” which is annoying but doesn’t seem to do permanent vision damage.  If you find yourself having trouble focusing your eyes, or they just feel particularly tired, make sure to look away from the computer and focus your eyes on something in the distance, or consider eyedrops if you need to spend all day staring at a computer for some reason (like work).

    Yes, it can cause eye pain, irritation and fatigue. A good rule of thumb to use is the 20-20-20 rule. When you are spending large amounts of time on the computer, after 20 minutes look for 20 seconds at something 20 feet away. This will allow your eyes to refocus and give your eyes some time to rest.
