Frequent rest: Now with the age of electronic and smart phones with spend ample time looking at the screen by using near vision. Two things that helps with computer fatigue: frequent blinking and breaks by looking far away. When we look close up we tend to contract eye muscle(strain) then by looking far away we relax our eye muscles. It's also good to walk around and do other things for staying healthy.
