Help for the Computer Dependent
Ernest Loewenstein is the author of Total Computer
Health and veteran of both the research and healthcare environments.
He has spent years watching people squint, rub their eyes, massage
the backs of their necks and their temples, move closer to their
monitors or move away, raise their chair seats and lower them -
all in an effort to find comfortable ways to spend hours and hours
glued to their monitors. As you may have noticed, the monitor dilemma
is not likely to go away soon.
In response, Dr. Loewenstein has also spent years
helping people examine the way they use their vision; helping them
adjust to looking comfortably both at a computer screen and away.
The result? A number of unusually effective strategies that will
change your visual and physical relationship with your workstation
and may involve changing your eye wear.
It is this expertise he brings to your workplace.
Working with Dr. Loewenstein is flexible and easy to arrange. He
customizes his work to your needs. He will
- present a general eye health seminar over a lunch hour
hold single- or multi-session workshops for managers and/or staff
- to teach them to "un-adapt" to their physical environs
- train individuals within the organization to spot potential
- consult with specific individuals in your company to treat existing
eye problems or adjust the physical layout of an office.
Not every fix involves extensive changes. As with
most other kinds of education, simply making you aware of an issue
goes a long way to solving potential problems or raising existing
salient issues. In any case, working comfortably is the aim here.
Take a moment to think about how Dr. Loewenstein
can make your workplace Tylenol supply last much longer and keep
your cubists happier. If you don't educate them, who will?
