More than 50 percent of computer users experience eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches and other visual symptoms. Many of these problems can be reduced through an anti-glare screens and eye exercises. Spending too much time looking at a computer screen may raise your risk of the vision-robbing eye disease glaucoma.
When I finally went to get some glasses and I mentioned I used the computer allot. They gave me a separate prescription for "computer glasses" there was a special coating on the lens that actually relaxed my eye muscles when I wore them while working on computers. My eyes felt great and less stressed. I wear them so much that now I can't even look at a monitor without putting my glasses on because the screen actually hurts my eyes.
Some advice for reducing eye problem - Letting your eyes rest more often is definitely a good idea, too, no matter what the root of the problem is. If you keep fixed on a computer screen for several hours a day, your eyes will start to "protest". I would also recommend really going out every day, taking a walk and looking at things far away. This will starve your doctor and the medicine companies, but your eyes should recover, if you keep it up for several weeks. I sit at a computer all day. I frequently get up and walk around or go outside so that I give my eyes a rest and different depths to focus on. It definitely does help to do this.Try to work only 2 hours straight then rest for an hour, and then go back to work. Exercise your eyes by looking up, down, left, right, round and repeat 3 times. Don’t wash eyes after using computer, and try to look at greenery and ocean once in a while.
If you have a CRT monitor, make sure it is operating at a refresh rate of 75Hz or above. Most default to 60Hz, which can be very hard on your eyes. I recommend 85Hz if your monitor can support it. You can change the refresh rate by right-clicking on your desktop, Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Clean the screen regularly as they attract dust. The computer screen should be slightly below eye level. The expensive solution is to buy an LCD monitor; they're much easier on the eyes
