Any way to prevent eye strain and headache from staring at the computer monitor?

Question by Tommy: Any way to prevent eye strain and headache from staring at the computer monitor?
I have to take a test that is entirely on the computer (GMAT) that involves having to stare at the screen in order to solve math problems and verbal questions. The nature of the questions is that you have to be aware of little tricks and pay very close attention to every detail presented.

When I do paper tests I do very well, but struggle with the actual computer tests because I suffer from eye strain and headaches from staring at the screen.

Are there any glasses or anything I could put over the monitor to reduce this problem?

Try talking with your optometrist to see if there are any suggestions they have or if you maybe need correction or a different correction specifically for the computer.
Also, try taking periodic breaks from looking at the screen – stare off at different things and make sure you are blinking enough which can dry out your eyes.
