You might have to rest your eyes. The optic nerves will bother you if they are overworked. I get headaches when I have been in front of the computer or tv too much. My right eye will ache. I have close my eyes and allow them to rest for awhile.

you should care more for your eyes. It is very harmfull to be online all the time or seat on computer. do it in limit. When you seat online use eyecare glass on your monitor, just do blinking if continously watching monitor screen, Wash your eyes with cool (Not cold) water after 1 hour, eat green vegitables more with vitamin A. All these suggestion help you to feel better in eyes.

Well, rochetsky, maybe you can try to spend less time in online playing. This is really bad for eyes. My eyes are not that good, either. They seemed to be quite good when i was in the university. But just before my graduation, i became an internet addict and loved playing some games on the internet. So i became near-sighted after graduation. I know perfectly that overtime online playing does harm to eyesight, but i just can't quit those games. So i bought a pair of glasses that is radiation-proof. However, I can't see the effect. Now, my eyes will ache badly when i spend too much time in front of the computer. But it's so difficult to find a job without devoting the majority of your working time to the computer.

No, I have to wear glasses all the time, playing game online, watch TV, and surfing the net too. I also have to replace my eye glasses and contact lenses every year. So, I have to further protect my eyes for the better good.

funny you should ask, I just went to the eye doctor last week for a check up. I haven't been there for over 7 years. Back then I had alittle augstism and this time, they gave me glasses. what fun and after 34 years of not having any to wear, it is hard to adjust. Luckily, I can use them only when reading, computer or driving. If I was you, I would go get them checked now and give them a little break after so long on the computer.

Do blinking eye excercise when you are in front of computer. It is must otherwise computer can damage your eye.

Well, i guess maybe it is due to me always sitting in front of my lappy or the televison...My degree for both of my eyes eren't that bad but when it's coupled with my astigmatism, it disabled me to see far and if i ever try to see some kind of numbers at a distance or something, 14 would appear as 10 to me and 9 would appear as 8 to me...haha..So i guess i shoud change the way i play like you too...lol..^_^

I am nearsighted and I cannot read with my glasses on. I end up getting eyestrain sometimes because my prescription could be better.

I don't think my eyes are still 20/20. I think it's getting worse. I can't recognize people's faces from afar especially around 6pm when it is getting dark. Sometimes i would have astigmatism which means my eyes aren't good anymore. Maybe i should get myself a pair of eyeglasses when time permits. Maybe my eyesight got worse because of too much computer usage. I've been using the computer for quite some time and for lots of hours! My room is dark and experts say that it is not a good practice if the only source of light in the room is the computer monitor.

No, my eyes are at worst these days. I can't properly see in dim light and I have now avoided walking in evening time. Doctores say that I need to be on medicines for an year or so, otheriwse I have to operate my eyes. I hope that medicines would work and I can avoid operations.

I am sure my eyes are not good anymore because I can feel some blurry vision everytime I read or look at the computer. I don't have to wear eye glasses so I am trying hard to minimize my time in the computer.
