Ask HN: Tricks to Avoid Eye Problems?
As a software engineer, I have the need to stay many hours in front of a screen.
I work 8 hours a day in an office with a computer. At home I usually spend about 3 hours a day at the computer (social network, programming, side projects, HN, ...).
I usually have slightly red eyes. Lately the problem has gotten worse. I began to have some pains in the right eye and difficulty focusing on the computer screen.
Because of that, I'm currently at home on vacation. I have a scheduled appointment with a vision specialist next week.
This is the first time I have complications with vision. I'm 26 years old, so far I've never had any problems or need glasses.
Someone has some tips to avoid eye problems?
