How to Avoid Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome - Download Images to View Continuous or prolonged use of technology can lead to computer vision syndrome, which may include eye strain, headaches, fatigue, burning or tired eyes, loss of focus, blurred vision, double vision, or head/neck pain.

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends implementing a 20-20-20 rule with technology — take a 20-second break every 20 minutes and look at something 20 feet away. The AOA also advises to keep your computer screen 15 to 20 degrees below eye level (about 4 or 5 inches as measured from the center of the screen) and 20 to 28 inches away from the eyes. You should also blink frequently to keep the front surface of the eye moist.

Get Ready For 10-Digit Dialing For Local Calls

10-Digit Dialing Download Images to View In July 2020, the Federal Communications Commission adopted an order approving the designation of 988 as the 3-digit dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. To facilitate implementation, area codes across the country where the 988 prefix is a working prefix and which now use 7-digit local dialing must transition to 10-digit local dialing. This includes the area code in our service area.

Starting October 24, 2021, you'll need to dial the area code plus the 7-digit phone number to make local calls. In addition to changing your dialing routine, you'll also have to reprogram 7-digit local numbers to 10-digit numbers if you use speed dial or any other system that automatically makes calls for you.
