I enjoyed doing mylot and i usually stayed in the site for hours and hours... one time, i was surprised when i already have a blurred vision, i'm seeing double already after 4-5 hours of staring at the computer reading comments and discussions as well as posting.. so i took a break and went to sleep... after i woke up, i ate snacks and went back online to see if there are responses to my discussions in mylot. still did mylot after the eye strain. lolz. have you strained your eyes in just doing mylot?? what did you do about it..

I think that staring at any screen for hours causes both short and long term eye problems. I don't care whether it is poker machines, TV, computers or what. Have several breaks. An hour or so maximum with breaks would be an excellent idea.

you have to be careful. I honestly had pretty perfect vision until I started using the computer every day for hours at a time. Now i have to wear glasses all day everyday (fun fun). The screen can be really damaging to your eyesite.

I have a wonderful suggestion to you in this regard. Actually one of my friend in some other forum gave me this suggestion and it really worked with me and I am just sharing it with you. Please follow the steps. I hope you will get relief. DON'T get a shower right away after spending long hours on the PC even washing your face may damage your eyes. Whenever I feel my eyes are tired. I will just close my eyes for five minutes or get out of the house and look for something color green, it soothes my eyes. I read an article before that when you focus your eyes on something for long period of hours, it can cause eye strain. One way of resting your eyes is to roll your eyeballs (either clockwise or counterclockwise) while you close your eyes. Or you can give your eyes some rest by looking at distant object. Of course, read with good lighting and don't read inside moving vehicles. I hope this will help you because it works for me.

Yeah it is true that if you sit for hours your eyes will get blurred , best think is that you should take some breaks from it. Anyway your record shows you only replied 243 what you do rest of the time.

yes, at the begining wi was getting tired easily and my eyes started irritating...i generally go to other simple easy sites often in between doing myLot and do some light task online in between and then come back here to do few more disc. That now gives me much comfort. At the beginging I also used to ask here everybody if thay also had the same prob

I don't spend that much time time on mylot, generally i spend 1 hour everyday, smtimes it goes 15-20 mins extra, but not more than that. I get bored after that, coz its kinda repetetive here on mylot, just replying to one or the other discussion. Apart from that, i also have other work to do, and i go mylotting only in my free time. That can also be seen from my rating which is far lower than what u've got, and anyone can understand from ur rating alone that u spend a lot of time here. Take it easy dear...

Hi livvy! Welcome to the world of addictive forums. I am myself is addicted to this site. I enjoy making new discussions and I'm looking forward to check my discussions if someone posted a comment in there. I spent most of my time in front of my PC. Whether in the office or at home. When my eyes get tired, I'll take in between breaks like 5 minutes every hour or it depends whenever I feel like having blurred visions. You have to relax your eyes once in a while to avoid straining them and also by rolling your eyeball while closing your eyes, this way you can relax your eyes. I hope this helps.

Before when I couldn't control myself sitting in front of the computer for several hours, I had experienced these strained or red eyes. I was using then eye drops to get the red out of my eyes. Lately, I bought a glare filter with radiation obstruction and placed in front of the monitor. It helped me alot because my eyes never got red anymore despite that the long hours I spend in front of the pc. Oftentimes, I give myself a break after an hour and go outside my room. Get to relax for 30 minutes and take a nap after. Then I get back to my pc and conitnue the work I am doing.

Yeah, I do. Lol. But I keep doing it. My formula is simple. I take a break every 45 minutes. I will get up from my chair and go outside. I will look at the green leaves for 10 minutes. Looking at the greenies is a formula to prevent eye damage due to long hours of exposure to the computer. My friend told me about this formula. It works for me this far.

lol. hope you're feeling much better now! i wouldn't say that my eyes got strained but i have to admit that sometimes my when on mylot, my eyes get tired and i all i wanna do is just sleep and not post/respond to discussion anymore. it's like suddenly i do not have any mood to stay on mylot for that particular time. maybe it's because i'm tired and really needed some shut eye ;)
