Do you get frequent headaches from staring at the computer screen all day long at work? Do you suffer from migraine? Personally, I am prone to headaches and was also prone to migraines. And it’s been so long that I got a migraine attack. (Touchwood!) So here are 6 effective tips to completely prevent headaches from looking at the screen! And I have included my personal favorites too! Scroll down below to know the tips and tricks!

How to Avoid Headache from Computer Screen | 6 Effective Tips

1. Adjust the Monitor

Always set your screen at eye level so that you don’t have to slouch. Sit comfortably so that you don’t strain your eyes nor neck. Keep a comfortable distance between you and the screen. The screen shouldn’t be placed too far nor too close. As this can cause unnecessary eye strains and dizziness after a long time.

To set the monitor at the comfortable level you can either adjust your chair. After adjusting the chair if the sitting position is not comfortable for you then try a monitor table. Check out the table links below!

2. Lower the Brightness

The brightness of your screen should match with the brightness of your environment to ensure a comfortable working experience. Make sure that both the lights – one of the screen and other of the room, is not contrasting with each other. As this leads to eye strain which leads to headaches and can even lead to a migraine!

3. Increase Font Size

If you find yourself squinting your eyes even if you have glasses then you may want to change the text size. It makes writing and reading also easy!

4. Install Screen Filter

The blue light from the screen could also strain your eyes and cause aching in the temple area. If you have the option of turning the blue light off in the laptop/desktop, make use of it. Or look for a reading mode if available. In the smartphones, there are inbuilt options available or you can also use an app to block the blue light.

If the above options are not available then you can install a screen filter for your laptop. It’s easy to apply and most of them also come with the privacy option. Just like the one below!

5. Try Computer Glasses

Installing a screen filter may not look appealing so you can also try a computer glass which reflects the light coming from the screen. The advantage of using computer spectacles is that you won’t have to make screen filter changes on multiple devices. The spectacles shared below is unisex so you can check out!

6. Take Short Breaks

What I do is, after every 30 minutes or so I look at something green in color for a few seconds. The 20-20-20 break could be a little bit impractical. So, whenever you feel like your eyes, need some break look at something solid green in color for a few seconds. It instantly relaxes your eyes and freshens you up.

You can place a small pot of artificial green leaves on your desk and look at it. Something like a small solid green-colored ball will work too. Or how does a green-colored notebook sound? Or anything that works for you!

Bonus Tip! ~ Get Your Eyes Checked Regularly

This is not a tip more like a piece of advice. It’s just like getting regular checkups at the dentist. You should get your eyes checked regularly. Especially if you have glasses. I have glasses and I get my eyes checked every year. I always notice some minute changes in my glasses numbers.

Also, clean your electronic devices regularly. Try the below handy kit which has all the cleaning materials required. It can be used to clean TV, desktop, laptop, basically any screen and even your mobile phone!

Final Note

When it comes to blogging, about 70 to 80% of the work I do on my smartphone. (This is how I personally like to blog.) But when it comes to office work, we are literally staring at the computer screen for more than 7 hours a day! And 3 to 4 hours straight without any short breaks in between. Isn’t that crazy?! Well, let me know what tips you personally follow to avoid headaches from screen work. Please share what works the best for you in the comment section down below. I would be very much interested to know! 🙂
