The brightness of your computer display should match with the brightness of your surrounding area and the text size should be made to more comfortable reading. Furthermore, taking a 20-second eye rest every 20 minutes of looking at the screen is highly recommended. Plus, remember to sit in front of the screen correctly from a proper distance of 20-40 inches.
5. Add healthy and balanced food to your diet
Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, vitamins C and E... are really good for your eyes. You should add these food which are rich in these nutrients to your daily menu: spinach, kale, grapefruit, strawberries, carrots, salmon, brussel sprouts, oranges, almonds, sunflower seeds and so on.

Take care of your sleep to get healthy eyes by going to the bed and waking up at the same time every day, ensure 7-8 hours of sleep per day and create good conditions to have a qualified sleep.
