Nearly 90% of employees complained of screen fatigue, headaches and problem with vision.

An eminent optician has advised office workers to avail of their eye test rights and not neglect any signs of eyesight trouble.

Nearly one-fifth of employees do not take breaks from their computer, as advised by eye health professionals.

"I think people really have little awareness of, firstly, the benefits of having their eyes examined and, secondly, the fact that this healthcare provision is actually something their employer would pay to have done," explained the optometrist.
