Using Computer Effect Eye
Recently my eyes feel very tired when I use computer. I have to work with using computer 17 hours per day. Are there good ways to refresh my eyes?
Yes: First, get some glasses that are set to the computer distance. If you do not wear glasses normally, then +1.00 to +1.25 readers will work for this. Second, take frequent short breaks every 20-30 minutes by closing your eyes or looking into the distance for 30-60 seconds. Third, keep your eyes moist by using artificial tears regularly. Good luck! ...Read more
I see things in my eyes (black things floating) specially when I wake up or when im using the computer.?
Floaters: This sounds like floaters. They occur when the gel that fills the back of your eye starts to naturally liquify (like when you get water on the surface of a bowl of jell-o that's left out for a while). The gel collpses in on itself, creating water-filled cracks and "pools". Bits of gel trapped in these pools bounce around, and you see floaters. If they are new or multople, have a dilated eye exam. ...Read more

Not related: There is no evidence that computer use increases nearsightedness. Nearsightedness continues to increase through the teen years and the middle twenties and then generally stops worsening.

Docs, Is it true that using mobiles and computers for long hours can cause NORMAL HEALTHY EYES to become squint eyes over the course of time
No, Not true!: Squint eyes do not happen unless one of the muscles around you eyeball is not functioning normally. It can be weak (from birth) or there can be nerve injury which can paralyse the muscles and show up as crossed eye. Phones and computers do not do any such harm! ...Read more
Staring too long: When we stare at an object, we do not blink as often as normal. This can dry out the eyes, which can cause irritation and pain. As well, the light from computer monitors can be mildly irritating. Lastly, if you need prescription glasses or readers and are not wearing the right prescription or strength glasses, it will cause additional strain and irritation. ...Read more

Best to take occasional breaks, since staring at that fixed screen distance can lead to constant accommodation and even more myopia progression in younger individuals. ...Read more
