Tired eyes
« on: June 25, 2017, 01:12:52 PM »
Hello everybody,

I'd like to discuss the topic of tired eyes. I think that we have all experienced them at some point? Right? I even experience them every single day due to constantly being behind my computer screen. I am bound to do just that since I do a lot of freelancing and home-bound work.

After a few hours of starting at the computer screen, I can feel my eyes getting more strained, my vision sometimes goes blurry and so on. It is annoying because it disrupts my focus. What I like to do when that happens is just take a short break and go do something else OR I sit back in my chair, close my eyes for five minutes and open them again. It seems to make them a bit more rested and it allows me to continue working.

So, I am wondering if anybody else experiences tired eyes daily due to their work? If so, what do you do to battle it? Do you have any tips or remedies for tired and strained eyes?

I am experiencing tired eyes as we speak. Spending a lot of time in front of your computer will definitely take a toll on your eyes. I just used visine eye drops and they feel a lot better. It's important to take breaks throughout the day and get up and walk outside and stretch. Everything in moderation, we don't need to let our eyes suffer. Once they get strained it's hard to see the screen properly and it impairs your ability to write and see the words well. Splash some cold water on your eyes, use eye drops if you have them and take breaks.

This is a terrible thing for us who work online, it's been happening to me the last few months and usually I end up with a headache. When I start to experience this I try to stop for a few minutes, lay down and close my eyes, sometimes I put ice on them and it helps a lot. I went to the eye doctor like two months ago and he said I should wear my glasses all the time while I'm sit with my computer to try to avoid this but still happens, just not as intense and often like before

I think looking away and giving your eyes a break looking out the window..even at TV is the way to give our eyes the rest they need. It is important to do. Make sure you have the type of options you need when using the computer and give your eyes breaks they need them.

Some people say black screens or even ones like on this forum help out.  On the other hand, though, they say white screens are tough.  However, some claim they prefer the white screen with it's similarity to a pencil and paper. I suppose that means their eyes like it better.  Who is right or is this just incredibly subjective?

What I do to battle is to just plainly rest my eyes and go take a nap or so. I find myself nauseated every time my eyes are strained and I feel like that affects my work so I'd rather take a rest and do everything later. This is why I only choose jobs that I could work with my own schedule though, it's easier and more flexible. Jobs with more flexible time schedules usually pay lower though.

Well, I use glasses anyway and my vision is far from perfect but I always prefer non-white backgrounds on sites. I feel like if I stare at a white page my eyes get so tired, really fast. I used to have this program called f.lux - it is basically a software that you install on your computer and it automatically adjusts the brightness of your screen (not the actual setting) so it corresponds with the time of the day, the warmth and so on. It is really good for strained and tired eyes. I don't use it anymore though since I never reinstalled it when switching computers :D

I still don't think screens are tougher on your eyes than the sun.  Note, without sunglasses, you could get cataracts.  I doubt if that would happen with computer screens.

When you use a computer for long hours, you will be harming your eyes. For the people whose job demands that he sit before the computer, there is no alternative to this. However, you can do some of these things to save your eyes:
wash your eyes wild cold water frequently.
Look at the green surface. Green color will soothe eyes.
Put cucumber slices on your eyes. Cucumber will relax your eyes.
Use eye drops, it will maintain water in your eyes.

That's interesting. Does that apply to green backgrounds on the computer too? My main blog has a green background so I'd like to think it's true.

Actually, there are fairly affordable glasses which help with eye-strain.  Has anyone tried them?   Note, they look like regular glasses.  They aren't weird or anything - like those goofy sunglasses I saw advertised on TV once.  ;D

Never heard of them, what they are called and where did you see them? I'd love to check them out if they're a valid option. I really hate how tired my eyes can get after a few hours of the computer screen.

What about those gaming glasses that I see some people using? What are they suppose to do? or are they only suppose to be used for ''gaming''?

You can easily find them in any online search.  However, though, you might want to shop around to get the cheapest. Maybe used ones are available on Amazon or eBay.

This is a common sign if your too focused with work. Your body is trying to keep up withbthe pace of your brain. Your eyes is the main accessory of your brain. That is why if your focused, your eyes needs to work double time and with that, you blink lesser and lesser. That tends to make your eyes dry. It is necessary to have atleast 10 minute breaks every now and then from what your doing so that your body can actuall rest.

I second this guy's comment as I too would like to know if it actually works. There's a lot of them available online,  but the cheap ones are on Amazon or other local variants. Most of them have a yellowish tint that claims to help reduce the amount of blue light that your eyes take when using the computer or cellphone. They can be quite stylish too in my opinion.
