IMPORTANT TIPS FOR COMPUTER USERS
Wear glasses, with Anti-Reflection Coating while working at the computer, even if one normally doesn't need corrective vision.
Remind yourself to blink more often while working at the computer screen to prevent dryness of the eyes.
Take 15 or 20 second rest breaks every 15 minutes. Use this time to just look around the room.
Keep your computer screen free of dust.
Black characters on a white background are usually the best. Avoid dark backgrounds. The size of the text should be three times the size of the smallest text you can read.
