Your computer screen may be causing you more headaches than you know. On average, we sit in front of a computer screen more than six hours a day. It’d be rude of me to assume all of the Daily Infographic readers fall into this category, but if you happen to be one of those people, the keys to beat iris fatigue, headaches, and unfortunately, much more, are just a few glances away.

Constant use of computers and other electronic devices can lead to CVS, which stands for computer vision syndrome. It’s symptoms include blurry vision, headaches, dry eyes, and possibly long-term nearsightedness. There are many ways to decrease your chances of CVS though, so don’t fret too much. Adjusting the positioning of your computer, changing your brightness settings, and taking periodic breaks are just a few ways to beat CVS.
