on combating dry eye.

Dr Asim Pirancha of the John-Kenyon American Eye Institute tells 14wfie.com how sufferers can try to ease the discomfort.

His organisation suggested lighting the workspace properly and wearing customised glasses which can help to reduce the glare from a computer screen.

Putting an anti-glare device on the monitor itself can also help.

In addition, workers can exercise their eyes by looking away from the screen at something else at a greater distance for 15 seconds every 20 minutes.

Dr Pirancha explained that dry eyes and Computer Vision Syndrome often occur together, giving the sufferer headaches and straining their eyes as well as causing dryness.
