At least half of the people suffer from visual fatigue after 5 hours of continuous work; Specially after extended use of the eyes. Fortunately eye strain usually does not lead to any permanant eye damage, and various methods can be used to reduce or prevent it. We recommend that you check up your eyes in terms of cornea, eye dryness, retina status, and refractive errors before taking any action.

If your doctor determines that your eye fatigue is caused by refractive errors, he will prescribe the appropriate glasses for you. In other cases, easy eye exercises and sometimes advanced therapies are necessary to prevent eye fatigue complications. If you spend a lot of hours per day in front of your computer screen, ask your ophthalmologist to prescribe special glasses for your computer use. Computer glasses are especialy useful for people with vision problems.
