HEADACHES & EYESTRAIN
Sometimes the the remedy to headaches and eyestrain can be as simple as just having a sight test.
Regular sight tests are important not only for your vision but also to check the health of the individual.
At Selby & Taylor we have the latest equipment that exceeds the minimum requirements.
We have the experience and equipment to detect any underlying conditions that could be the cause of the headaches, and use our strong connections with the local Doctors for a prompt referral.
In many cases, it could be as simple as the need for up to date Spectacles, or even coloured overlays.
Coloured overlays are a series of coloured lenses that are placed in-front of the eye that can reduce eyestrain and fatigue.
Here are some simple things you can do to avoid getting "eyestrain". If possible, position your screen at right angles to the window ... ... and avoid too much light falling on the screen. Set your screen so that it is lower than your eyes ... ... this will help prevent your eyes getting too dry. Look away from the screen every ten minutes or so and blink a few times. Every hour or so, move away from your computer and have a break.
