Are your eyes burning, tired, itching, or sore?  You may be experiencing Eye Fatigue.

Recently one of my staff members asked why after several hours working on the computer her eyes felt tired, tearing and burning. There are several reasons including having the computer screen to close, glare from the screen or perhaps the climate.

When someone is at the computer, the normal blink rate that re-moistens the eyes is, significantly, reduced which causes dry eye type symptoms.  A few other helpful hints to relieve eye fatigue include pushing the screen back 22-27 inches and looking away from the screen every couple of minutes. Use artificial tears and stretch during breaks.
