There are a few steps you can take to protect your eyes when using a laptop:

Take breaks: It is important to take regular breaks when using a laptop to give your eyes a chance to rest. You can set a timer to remind you to take a break every 20-30 minutes.


Adjust your screen: Make sure your screen is at a comfortable distance and angle, and that the brightness and contrast are set correctly. You may find it helpful to use a screen filter to reduce glare.

Blink frequently: Blinking helps to keep your eyes moist and can help to prevent dry eye syndrome. Make a conscious effort to blink frequently when using a laptop.

Use the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away. This can help to reduce eye strain.

Use artificial tears: If your eyes feel dry while using a laptop, you can use artificial tears to help moisturize your eyes.

Follow good lighting practices: Make sure you have good lighting when using a laptop, and try to avoid using it in dimly lit rooms.

Adjust your posture: Make sure you are sitting up straight and that your laptop is at a comfortable height.

By following these tips, you can help to reduce the risk of eye strain and other eye problems associated with laptop use.
