Staring at a lit screen can cause eye strain
We all know staring at a brightly-lit screen for hours on end is bad for our eyes. However, when we are busy trying to complete our tasks, this is usually the furthest thing from our mind, until we feel the irritation and discomfort around our eyes. Just like our body, our eyes need a break from prolonged strain, and they also need to “work out”. Nonstop staring at the screen causes us to blink less, which is the culprit behind that dry, painful feeling that we get in our eyes.
