Computer screen glare injury advice

Employees who spend long periods of time at the computer can suffer from symptoms such as migraines that are a direct result of computer screen glare, and this is why we offer specific computer screen glare injury advice to those wishing to pursue a personal injury claim. It is a common misconception that the effects of computer screen glare are simply that of tiredness. This is because fatigue, eye twitching and redness, headaches and lethargy are all symptoms of screen glare as they are also symptoms of tiredness.

If you believe that you are suffering from the effects of screen glare then you should first request a glare filter for the VDU from your employer. This should help to prevent the return of the symptoms of computer screen glare. You can also ask your employer to provide an eye test; this should be free if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen. Excessively bright lighting in the work area can cause eye strain, or the computer screen settings may be set with the brightness higher than is actually needed, possibly with a small text size.

Sensible steps

In order to ascertain whether you are actually suffering from computer screen glare, a doctor or medical professional must confirm that the symptoms are a direct result of long periods of exposure to VDU glare. The records made by medical professionals will count as a powerful piece of evidence for our expert lawyers to utilise in the process of claiming compensation for our clients. Our team of solicitors specialise in various fields of law and are able to offer a no win, no fee* policy to all clients pursuing a personal injury claim.

To lessen the risk of computer screen glare injury, a user can take a few steps to ensure the symptoms are reduced in severity. To prevent irritation and dryness it is advisable to blink as often as possible. Blinking may seem obvious, but the effects of eye strain are intensified by phases of non-blinking and can cause you to have dry eyes. If you think that you have the symptoms of dry eyes you will need to consult a doctor in order to receive “artificial tears,” eye drops to use during working hours. If you feel that your employer is not regarding your symptoms sufficiently seriously, then contact Accident Advice Helpline who will provide advice that will help you to decide whether to pursue a personal injury claim.
