How Does Dr.i-Coach® Work?
Dr. i-Coach® is a patented one-of-a kind sensor and software package that can help users develop and maintain proper computer habits by incorporating the recommended treatment philosophies and recommendations from key eye care professionals and organizations.
We should blink 12 to 18 times per minute. When we stare at pixelated screens, our blink rate can drop to as low as 2.5 times per minute, which leads to dry eye symptoms.
Screen Distance & Sitting Height
The closer we are to the screen, the more straining our eyes will experience. And if we sit too high or too low, it can potentially cause cervical spine issues.
Taking recommended, intermittent breaks and at least following the 20/20/20 rule can help relieve eye strain. And if we can do some stretching exercises during those breaks, we should feel more refreshed at the end of your work day.
Too much glare can cause additional eye strain but if the room is too dark, our pupils will dilate, which could potentially allow more high energy blue light from the LED screen penetrating all the way to our retina.
