Hi everybody!!

Any eye doctors here ??

I am a 21 years old computer science engineering student. I have a power of -0.5 in right eye and -0.25 in left eye. Doctor advised me to wear spectacles continuously for 6 months. As an engineering student, it happens to work in computer for a very long time at least 8 hours a day. My query is will I have to wear spectacles life long ? Or if I have a healthy diet, I could maintain or reduce the developed power ? Is it necessary to wear specs and then have a healthy diet to maintain the power. Please help !!!

When I read or work on the computer, at times I get headache.

Dear Arthika, I understand your problem. Please follow whatever your doctor says. Because it is afterall your eyes. hence please wear spectacles if you are advised by doctor.

Follow the guidelines given below to avoid the bad effects of working continuously on your desk top computer :

Position your monitor at the proper distance and angle.

Turn down your screen's brightness and turn up the contrast

Eliminate electrostatic particles that may be emitted from the computer screen.

Purchase a stand for books and papers if you are having to type from one of these sources or use them for reference while on your computer

Create an environment that has lighting similar to that of your monitor.

Purchase an anti-glare screen for your monitor

Blink more

Use eyeglasses with the proper prescription.

Buy a high resolution monitor.

Use software to automatically change color settings when you work at nights.
