It's so hard to look away. But you really should, at least occasionally. And "remind yourself to blink."

Do you look like this right now?

If you don't, the Vision Council wants you to know that you're doing it wrong.

while you're doing all of your little computing work could be the reason you're experiencing eye strain, neck and shoulder pain, dry eyes, or blurred vision.

Experts recommend some easy ways to protect your eyes .

1. Reduce glare by cleaning your screen and making sure it's the most brightly glowing thing in the room. Try not to use your smartphone in direct sunlight. Also, grey backgrounds are easier on your eyes than white.

2. Sit an arm's length away from your computer screen. They recommend the "high-five test": if you can't properly high-five your computer screen (full arm extension is key, people!), you're sitting too close. The screen shouldn't be tilted, and should be positioned right below eye level.

3. "Remind yourself to blink." Screens have a way of making you forget to do that.

4. Take what they call a "20-20-20 break": Every 20 minutes, give yourself 20 seconds to check out what's going on 20 feet away from you. This changes the focal length of your eyes, a must-do for the tired eyes.

5. Hot water fomentation
When you get home, heat up some water, dip a clean cloth in it and use it to dab your eyelids. This frees up a lot of tension in the eyes. In fact, if you have a hot water dispenser at work, this can be done a few times a day when you are taking breaks.

6. Consider buying a pair of glasses made specifically for computer use. If you think you can pull them off.

Circulate among all if you care. They say that your eyes are mirrors of your soul, so do take care of them, they are priceless
