    It is always suggested that computer affects eyes badly and make stressful by stretching moment to moment while surfing and typing and reading during your spending time on computer!
    So  wear glass, or  use computer with front side  special screen!

    How much facts are  there in these sayings?

    How computer time should be adjusted to get  your eyes okay?

    CRT monitors (the ones that have really big backs) can strain your eyes a lot due to a flickering effect, but the newer flat panels aren't as bad.  Still, with all monitors you are still staring at a light source for long periods of time, which is a slight strain on your eyes.

    For me, my job requires staring at a computer screen for many hours a day.  Unfortunately, I have to use a CRT too.  I reduce eye strain by using a lower resolution that the screen can handle simply to reduce the effect of the flickering.  I don't notice too much eye strain throughout the day, although I still get tired of looking at a computer screen after a while anyway, lol
