Eye protection for the computer
show user profile  9krausec
Any of you folks use glasses specifically designed to protect one eyes from the screen? I suck at keeping on top 20-20-20 rule and a few weeks back I mistook a sign off in the distance as a potential cute girl (was driving to work and seriously thought this sign about 2/3rds a mile up the way was a woman).

I've been looking at gunnar glasses. I know there are software solutions that change the tint of your display though out the day, but I'd prefer glasses (if they work).

Thanks for your input and experience.

I tried eye protection for my computer once, it was a nightmare.....every time I put the glasses on, they would just fall off, if monitors had ears it would have been a different story :)

...I find good back lighting helps a ton, never tried glasses as I wear prescription...only when my eyes are tired.

The jury's out whether they work or not, it seems 50/50 from the feedback, suck a pair and see, make use of the 30 day return.

All of you are a bunch of MFers. That's for certain. :D

I'll see about getting a pair. That or slowly go blind seems to be my two options here.

Check your environment, good even back lighting, and moisture makes a massive difference.

I have a big flat tray with water in it keeping the humidity up in the room and a 30 watt light behind the monitor, I'm going to get one of those indoor fountains sometime as the trickle is relaxing when I don't want to design to music, whilst keeping the humidity up & (allegedly) sucking ions out of the air.

Ionizers may help, tho I keep reading about them smelling of "ozone", also good aeration. I have a fan at the window sucking in a constant flow of fresh air.

If you smoke, don't so it in the room your working, or if you do ...vape, there's a huge difference without all the toxins left by cig smoke.
