There are some tips which you can practice to reduce the symptoms of CVS.

  • Remember to blink your eyes – To minimize your chances of developing dry eye when using a computer, try to blink frequently in order to keep your eyes moist.
  • Adjust sitting posture – Monitor is at comfortable reading distance and its top should be aligned with your eyes so that your neck is in a neutral and relaxed position. Chairs should be comfortably padded and conform to the body.
