Take care of your eyes by practising good eye care habits when reading or using the computer. Be aware of the following:
Spend less time on unnecessary near work - activities that require you to focus on small details or are done very close to to your eyes. Let your eyes rest after every 30-40 minutes of near work.
Sit in a correct and comfortable posture when you are at your desk. A good posture will enable a comfortable reading distance for your eyes.
Ensure that there is even illumination on reading materials. This will help reduce eye strain and glaring.
The following demonstrates the minimum lighting levels by task
Brightness levels are measured in illuminance (Lux) not Watts. The more intense or detailed the work, the higher the lux required.
