THE average worker spends six hours a day staring at screens, so it's no surprise that computer eye strain is a modern epidemic - with more than ten million GP visits for related symptoms, including sore, watery eyes, blurred or double vision and headaches. Offer your eyes some relief with this '20(20(20' trick, recommended by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Every 20 minutes, look at an object that's at least 20ft away for at least 20 seconds.
The academy says that while excessive screen use will not cause permanent sight damage, this simple exercise can help prevent blurred vision, eye strain and headaches by forcing you to look at something other than your screen.
