"Eye care experts agree on the importance of diet in eye health, dry eye and resistance to computer eye strain," says radio talk show host and water advocate Sharon Kleyne. "New research now enables us to proactively prevent computer eye strain and related dry eye symptoms,"

Computer eye strain is a common condition that can lead to severe dry eye and unhealthy productivity. Computers are an increasing cause of disability and a major public health crisis.

Computer eye strain (also called "computer eye fatigue," "computer vision syndrome," "CVS" and "computer dry eye") is a frequent topic on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water Internet radio talk show.

Mrs. Kleyne's syndicated talk show, the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, is broadcast on Internet radio to millions of computer users worldwide. The show is heard on World Talk Radio, Voice America, Green Talk Network and Apple iTunes.

Computers are dehydrating.

Computer eye strain symptoms include sleepiness, itching and burning eyes, light sensitivity, blurred vision, frequent headaches, allergies and increased anxiety or stress. These are also symptoms of "dry eye syndrome." Computer use dries out your eyes and stresses the tiny ciliary muscles in your iris. Computer eye strain can lead to chronic dry eye disease, occupational health problems, inability to work at a computer, corneal ulceration and permanent visual impairment. The best prevention is education.

If you are already dehydrated, don't drink enough water, or don't eat a proper diet, the risk of computer eye strain is greatly increased. For some, using a computer only two hours a day may cause computer eye strain symptoms. If you use a computer all day at work and again when you go home, the risk increases exponentially.

Computers, nutrition and lifestyle.

For a comprehensive list of proactive steps to minimize or prevent computer eye strain and dry eye, and to discover more about the water in your tear film, go to Here are some computer suggestions related to diet and lifestyle.

  • Keep an all natural, 100% water eye mist beside your computer. Sharon Kleyne recommends Nature's Tears EyeMist, available on or
  • Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day.
  • Eat a well rounded diet that includes "eye foods" such as dark green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, arugula, broccoli leaves), foods with omega-3 fatty acids (fish and flaxseed oil) and carrots.
  • While working, avoid dehydrating substances such as alcohol, coffee, energy drinks, refined sugar and cigarette smoke.
  • Avoid staying up late at night on the computer if you will be working at a computer in the morning.
  • Several times per hour, relax and exercise your eyes by looking around the room at objects of varying distances. Take scheduled breaks away from your desk, outdoors if possible.
  • Take daily showers with plenty of steam and moisture. An occasional hot body bath with a cup of Epsom salt will benefit eyes and eyelids and reduces stress.
  • Avoid stress and get adequate sleep, fresh air and exercise.
  • Get regular eye exams.
