Hey guys,

I am a coder so I spend long periods of time looking at my computer screen.

A lot of times I have symptoms of CVS

Does anyone know if those “Computer Glasses” help?

Thanks for your time.

I don’t know if you own an old monitor or a LCD screen, either way:

I used to work staring at those old monitors, and I could easily tell how my eyes’ capability to focus, follow a certain path or even see clearly dropped drastically. Now, as most of us, I use a LCD screen which allows me to work and stare for hours at my screen, without having any CVS symptoms.

If you do own a modern LCD screen and you still have CVS , than I’d suggest you talk to an oculist first, rather than trying those glasses out.

I don’t know if you own an old monitor or a LSD screen, either way:

LOL , I totally got confused due to the pronunciation in my native language, Spanish. Nevertheless, taking LSD to avoid any CVS symptoms might not be such a bad idea :D

Well, mostly I was just wondering if those glasses actually work to reduce eye strain?

They sure are pricey.

The best glasses you can have is learning yourself some discipline and giving your eyes regular rest and exercises for better focusing.

Those “illnesses” are another way to sell unnecessary products like glasses.

I can just picture myself making themes with those shades on. I would feel way too cool. And people would know I rock when I’m at answering theme customer support questions at starbucks. lol

... on a serious note, it would interesting to know if they actually work, or it’s just some kind of gimmick.

I don’t have official “Computer Glasses”, but just readers…and plenty of eye drops.

I’m a smoker, but I don’t smoke in front of the computer. So, I make cigarette breaks and go out of the room, and in that period I try to focus my eyes to distant objects (cars, buildings, etc.). It really helps – it exercises your eye muscles.

You can also try some software like workrave. It’s a helpful reminder with exercises instructions.
