As everyone adjusts to the new normal of working from home or going back to the office, it might seem like we’re spending more time next to screens. So much in fact that in 2017 alone, the statistics showed Singaporeans spend an average of 12 hours and 42 minutes a day on their digital devices. That comes up to just a little over 50 per cent of our days. Plus, up to 90 per cent of people who spend more than three hours in front of their digital devices will experience eye strain, fatigue, and even dryness. At its worse, these habits can lead to headaches, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pains.
While the structure of working on laptops and computers won’t change, there are many things you can adapt to relieve eye strain while you’re working from home.
