What kind of glasses should you get in order to neutralize the harm in your eyes from the computer?

Comfort, no harm...: Newer flat-panel lcd screens really are not harmful to look at without glasses. Glare issues may present with some eye diseases and some people may have difficulty focusing up close - in these instances glasses may be more comfortable. Lately, we've been seeing these yellowish tinted glasses for computer work - they simply increase contrast but don't really block anything harmful.

None: Computers just make people blink less- no harm. Just blink more or use artificial tears.
