If your glasses fit too tightly, this is something that is easily addressed. If you find that the muscles in your neck and upper back are tense, consider deep breathing exercises or progressive relaxation as ways to better relax. ...Read more

The principal thing that occurs with sustained use is eye dryness so you might consider putting a dropper of ordinary tears next to the computer to use with symptoms. ...Read more
