Eyes feel heavy

I get this heaviness in my head and my eyes feels a bit heavy too. I sit long hours on computers do to my work. I dont have this feeling of heavines while i am not at work but i do get this feeling while i am working.

I also get a feeling of weakness.
Can you suggest what would be that case. Is is just a pressue of the monitor on my eyes or its something.

Thanks.

Hello.

You are right to a large extent. The problems are indeed due to excessive working on the computer. I am sure you must be using the protective screen on your display. The problem is also partly due to irregular breathing during computer work. Attention is focused on the computer and we ignore our breathing pattern. It will be a good idea to take frequent deep breaths.

There is a frequent to and fro movement of the eyes (keypad to screen). This causes fatigue of the eyes.

You also need to look at your posture. Use a good comfortable seat, the monitor should be at the level of the eye when you are sitting upright.

Take hourly breaks to do some stretching exercises.

Hope this helps.

How many hours do you have to sit on the computer at a stretch ?
