Take care of your eyes by practising good eye care habits when reading or using the computer. Be aware of the following:

Spend less time on unnecessary near work - activities that require you to focus on small details or are done very close to to your eyes.

Let your eyes rest after every 30-40 minutes of near work.

Sit in a correct and comfortable posture when you are at your desk.

Ensure there is sufficient ambient lighting in the room.

Maintain an eye distance of 30-40cm away from your reading materials.

If your desk surface is too reflective (e.g. glass), cover it with a less reflective material.

Ensure that there is even illumination on reading materials.
