Hi,
How are you? Ideally, to avoid DVT and visual fatigue as well, try resting your eyes, stretching your shoulders and moving your legs every hour. Some common preventive measures for deep vein thrombosis  include:  1)exercising your lower calf muscles if you'll be sitting a long time. Whenever possible, get up and walk around. If you can't get up to walk around, try raising and lowering your heels while keeping your toes on the floor, then raising your toes while your heels are on the floor; 2) Moving frequently; 3) making lifestyle changes such as losing weight, quit smoking and controling your blood pressure. Hope this helps. Take care and best regards.
