If you're a designer I think it's better to pass to the second step because you will not be happy after changing the natural screen colors.
Adjusting your computer display settings is an important step especially if you sit in front of your device for a long time, that's why I suggest you to use F.Lux which is a free software that adjust the screen colors based on the timing of the day, then it changes the degree of colors to make sitting in front of screen better and more comfortable, and trust me after using this software it will be very hard to use any computer without F.Lux.
All you have to do is to provide the program with your geographic location and the quality of your room lighting, and it will ensure the rest of the tasks.

Adjust the size of writing (Font)

It can be important to make the font of your computer bigger, if the writings is too small it may cause the rise in blood pressure and stress levels,so if you noticed that you approach too much to the screen to be able to read it , then you should use large Fonts..

No one in the world can say I can't do this, because getting a 12 minutes break in 24 hours will be nothing to keep your eyes healthy and protect them.

When you use the computer for a long time you will notice that you forget to close your eyes progressively especially for peoples who focus too much on the display and this will cause Dry eyes and muscle stiffness.

The rule says: Each time, After 20 continuous minutes of looking to the computer screen change the direction of your eyesight and focus on something far of you at least 20 feet and focus on it for 20 seconds.
