Hi Friends and members I thought that this one would be great to discuss and put out this tip to help members relieve sore eyes a side effect for avid computer users is eyestrain. Long hours staring at a screen causes us often to forget to blink and replenish moisture to our eyes. But there is a way to relieve sore eyes. A common way to treat eyestrain is even closer than your fingertips. Rub your hands together briskly for 10 seconds, generating heat. Close your eyes and place your palms over your eyes, resting the heels of your hands on your cheekbones and your fingertips on your forehead. Do not apply pressure. Hold your hands in place for at least one minute while you relax your facial muscles and breathe deeply. The deep breathing coinciding with the warmth of your palms combines to relax the weary muscles around your eyes.

Well I never knew that Kathy, thank you for this advise and I will try it. As my eyes sometimes do get sore, but I just used to rinse them with a bit of cold Water, which did help for a bit.

Ok, if anyone just walked in my bedroom (where my laptop is) they would have thought I was crazy or something. My eyes are burning like crazy, have been all day so don't you know, I tried it. IT WORKS! Feel better just doing it one time, post this and I think I'll do it again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
