i think we all need this. i mean, we are probably posting and working online for a very long time. as a result, our eyes and hands get strained. and we can't afford to keep torturing our hands and eyes because it is what helps us have money right?

i went to the optometrist last time and shelled out a huge chunk of my hard-earned money with the painful realization that i have been straining my eyes too much with computer work.

i also learned from the optometrist that people who are exposed to computer work need a more special type of lens called multi-layered lens to protect us from the PC monitor's harmful effects.

as for the hands, i think ergonomic keyboards are the way to go but since i am using a laptop and really saving up big time, i don't know how in the world i am going to squeeze that in my budget....

oh well, tag away your thoughts on the matter so that we can give our hands and eyes some more of the love it deserves...

^ i think if we can earn enough laser treatment would be very viable. but given the circumstances of being constantly exposed to the computer screen, i don't know how long a 20/20 vision from laser therapy would last.

i think the past days i got to rest my eyes and hands by simply stopping what i am doing. taking a break of sorts (since i got hospitalized, it left me with no other choice but to stop. nyehehe)...

your thoughts...?

Pamilyar ba kayo sa Visine Cool? Yung malamig? Nare-relieve ako rito. Lately nga lang di na ko nakakakita sa botika. Na-pull-out kaya?

Wala rin akong idea. Posible nga kaya, long-term? Kaya hindi na rin siya available? Wala naman akong kakaibang nararamdaman when I use it. One friend I have, nahapdian siya. But another friend and an aunt, okay rin sa kanila.

Sa tingin ko ok lang tumagal sa monitor basta hindi siya CRT. Hooray for LCD monitors.  :hihi:

- Turn on the lights pag nagcocomputer.
- Try to rest your eyes every 2 hours. Just close your eyes for about a minute or two then tuloy ang ligaya. (correct me if im wrong)
- I dont believe in pasma. Di naman daw totoo yun according to 5 doctors that I know. Ergonomic keyboards can help pero magsasanay ka pa ng onti pag sanay ka sa lumang keyboard (or bobo lang ako magtype  :watchuthink: )

Weird nga eh. Ng dahi sa CRT monitors nung college ako lumabo tuloy yung right eye ko. I cant read anything ng lagpas sa 2 meters with my right eye. Nung una puro migraine inaabot ko pag nasa labas ako at maliwanag. Buti na lang nakapag-adjust na ako. Ayoko magsalamin... Mahal magpalaser.. Oh hinde..

Hi! Laser treatment for near sightedness or far sightedness is actually a good idea if you're tired of wearing glasses/contact lens. I've had it done on myself while I was training for it at UCLA.It's basically permanent and no amount of reading or computer use will make you predisposed to losing your 20/20 vision. Reading and computer use, CAN strain your eyes though (just like doing anything for prolonged periods of time). So what you're doing is correct: just rest a bit and carry on. Just like running a marathon... you can stop for a while. When you're okay, keep on running!

You are quite welcome :) The best will always be multicoated eye glasses because they reduce computer glare.  As for the "grado", here is a special trick I teach my patients who need to read for prolonged periods of time (e.g. board / bar exam takers, etc). Whatever your "grado" is for distance, have "computer glasses" or "reading glasses" made that is slightly different from it. usually, it's a "grado" that is more "plus by 0.25D or 0.50D". This allows your eye to exert less effort accomodating for near vision for a prolonged amount of time. Obviously, this will not give you the best vision for distance, but that's why it's for "reading" or "computer use".
