Whether or not I’m marketing, creating music, having a laugh or watching a movie, I find I spend a majority of my day at my computer. Anybody out there relate? Not surprisingly, the last few years have taken a toll on my eyes so I started poking around to try to do something about it.

First thing I did was start working with as many lights on as I could. Started taking breaks, but not as frequently as I could, started (trying) to get more sleep – I even began to take power naps in the late afternoon. Didn’t seem to help. I finally decided to find an eye doctor near my place and got glasses for computer use.

In addition to all these things, you could also check yourself with a “take-a-break” reminder right on your computer screen. Here’s Giggle Computer’s article on nine programs that can remind you take a break. Save your eyesight!

What tricks worked for you?

What we feed our bodies feeds our eyes. Many of the vitamins and minerals in our bodies are found in much higher concentrations in our eyes, so a diet lacking in these vitamins and minerals can lead to vision problems as we grow older.

Bill, that’s true! Thank you for your insight (pun intended :) ). How many carrots should I be eating a day?

I forgot to mention that I try not to eat lunch at my desk. That forces me to leave my computer as well…
