Importance of Workplace Eye Wellness

Importance of Workplace Eye WellnessAt Hendersonville Eye Care, we encourage everyone to pay close attention to the safety risks and injuries that can occur at home and at work. Our trusted optometrists, Dr. Cannon, Dr. Kilgo, and Dr. Kampe have put together some tips to help preserve your eyes while at work.

Tips for Your Vision

At Henderson Eye Care, we educate our patients on taking preventative measures to protect their vision. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Computer Breaks – It is recommended to use the 20-20-20 rule when working on computers. That entails looking away from the screen every 20 minutes and then looking at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds or more. Additionally, it is a good idea to blink often.
  • Use Computer Screens – Using a computer screen protector works to help prevent eye strain. An antiglare protector can eliminate UV light from harming your eyes.
  • Adjust your display – When working on a computer all day, you should adjust the brightness, color temperature, contrast and text size to reduce eye fatigue.
  • Use computer eyewear – While it may seem a little strange, your ophthalmologist can design an eye prescription that will provide comfort while working on the computer all day. Customized computer glasses can help avoid harmful light emitting from your computer or digital device.

Having a company-wide seminar providing these helpful tips, and putting them up in the department can help make employees more aware of workplace eye safety. Our team at Hendersonville Eye Care frequently works with businesses to provide recommendations on the types of safety protection needed to assist employees in ensuring their eyes are protected. We are also available to provide on-site eye exams to determine whether employees need further treatment.
