Summary: The paper discusses eye disorders which affect an increasing number of workers who operate computers in air-conditioned not properly aired offices which are typical for most companies. Several factors shape these disorders among else the environment, stress and eye dysfunctions.
It is currently recognized that approximately 81% of people working longer than 2 hours in front of the computer screen report discomfort. This can be attributed to less frequent blinking (below 12 times a minute). Moreover the eyes are open wider, which results in a faster evaporation of the tear film and dry cornea.
What is the most recommended in such cases is prevention done by risk factors elimination and use of individually selected, preservative-free eyedrops. These tears substitutes moisturize cornea and conjunctiva and wash out dirt residue in the eye.
Keywords: computer, eye disorders.
