Repetitious work done at a desk can be very fatiguing, both physically and mentally. It will also put a great deal of strain on your eyes. It is imperative to take breaks to allow your body and mind to rest and recover at least one time every hour. Try standing up from your desk to stretch and walk around for approximately 3 to 5 minutes at a time. You will be amazed at how refreshed you will feel when you sit back down at your desk to begin work again.
Your bifocal add power allows your eyes to focus on reading with less accommodative (eye muscle and lens focusing ability) effort and greater comfort for long periods of time more efficiently. A dedicated pair of computer glasses or a computer clip-on will do the same thing for desk top viewing. Otherwise, looking at a PC monitor through the distant portion of your bifocal or progressive lenses is like walking versus riding the bicycle to work example; you my be able to do it but you eyes will get tired sooner. It has always been my belief that when your eyes get tired, so does your body. You now have a choice to beat sleepiness while working at the computer, and re-energize your eyes with better vision and with less physical stress on your posture.
By taking these initial steps, you should be able to alleviate much of the pain or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you are still encountering pain, you may also want to investigate alternatives to the traditional computer desk chair. By placing your body in a different type of posture altogether, you may be able to reduce the strain that comes from sitting in a static position for long periods of time. Popular alternatives are sitting on an exercise ball, or dynamic stool, which forces you to use your abdominal muscles for support and helps reduce muscle fatigue.
