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.

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
