Does Wearing Sunglasses Protect Your Eyes While On The Computer
Maybe: If you are protecting them fro flying objects, yes. If you wish to protect them from flying dust, yes. If your goal is to protect them from radio and light waves, yes. However the waves are pretty safe. I would not recommend them unless you feel more comfortable wearing them.See 3 more doctor answers
No: A bright computer monitor may give you glare but the screen can be dimmed. But its not generally necessary to wear sunglasses.See 1 more doctor answer
Not necessary: The lcd displays have little or no radiation that can in anyway damage the eye. So there is no need to wear sunglasses. There is a diagnosis as cvs, or computer vision syncrome, which is nothing but tiredness, poorly fitted glasses; or dry eyes after hours of computer use are possible. Neck problems have also been noted. No direct damage to the eye has been noted.
All day I am working with computer. I feel my eyes are very tired and stressed. Is there exist any kind of sunglasses to protect my eyes?
Dryness: Computer use is now extremely common for sustained periods. It is not harmful but it is drying. Eye dryness causes many symptoms including fatigue, irritation, redness, and some amount of blur. I recommend that frequent computer users have a bottle of tear replacement drops next to the computer to be used whenever there is any type of symptom. Sunglasses would not help.
No need: There is no need to wear sunglasses when working with lcd or led monitors. They have little or no radiation. There was a problem years ago with video display of old cathode ray monitors which emitted radiation, but I don't think you are still using that?
How much is to much tv/computer for your eyes? Would sunglasses help? (sorry I know this is two questions.)
Dry eye: It is common for the eyes to become dry during prolonged tv or computer use. Try some artificial tears every 30 minutes or so to alleviate any feelings of dry eye such as foreign body sensation or burning/tearing. Take a break every 30 minutes to look at something far away out the window to reduce eye strain.See 2 more doctor answers
Recently my eyes have become extremely sensitive to light. Sometimes I wear sunglasses inside to watch tv or my computer monitor. Also my eyes burn.?
No effect: Frequent computer use is fatiguing and commonly drying. But it would cause no change in the eyes or harm to the eyes. Otherwise Microsoft and Apple, for instance, would have an eye clinic on campus for their employees.
Eyes tire more when working w/ detail on the computer, compared to casual browsing; & I work a lot. Does this add up over time & dmge ur eyes sooner?
Eye dryness: You might have developed a need for eyeglasses but the most common cause of loss of focus at the computer is eyedryness. Try using a teardrop at you convenience next to the computer.
Eye care: Look away from screen & blink every 10-15 min. Consider rewetting drops (not decongestant drops). If you use contacts: be sure to clean & use them as directed by your eye doc, consider switching to daily disposable contacts if you use monthly's, & consider wearing your glasses more often. Consider other causes of red eyes such as allergies. If still have probs, please talk w/ ur eye doc.
Not harmful: Prolonged computer use is tiring, may be drying and irritating, but it will not cause any permanent change or ruin your eyes. Try using an over the counter lubricating drop for relief during prolonged computer use.
Not a problem: Computer use at length is fatiguing and drying. But it is not harmful so for instance there is no greater incidence of eye disease among Microsoft employees compared to people with non-computer work.See 1 more doctor answer

Variable: Computer eye strain is very common complaint now a days. Also called video or terminal display syndrome results from prolong focus on an electronic display. Usually symptoms of dryness, burning, stinging, fatigue, and blurriness are present. Take frequent breaks, and look away at distant objects. Use artificial tears. Close your eyes for a few minutes are a few suggestions. Same for reading/tv.See 1 more doctor answer
I have this jumpy like vision after being on the computer for a long time I have to re read things because I feel my eyes jump; worrysome? I hate it
Visual fatigue: After using a computer for a period of time can occur if one has a slight refractive error (needs glasses) or accommodative dysfunction (again, remedied by glasses). A good vision exam that tests both near and distance vision, as well as a good ocular exam looking at the ocular alignment and ability to accommodate properly will give you the solution to your problem.See 1 more doctor answer
