Hello all,

I have a friend who spends about 3-4 hours a day in front of his PC.
He said he is experiencing eye problems. Such as: the farther away the object is the more blurry it becomes, and a "double" starts rising from the top of an object, etc. He asked me but I didn't know, so I thought I'd ask here.
He would appreciate any suggestions!
Thanks!

Step 1. Go to Eye Doctor

Step 2. Refer to Step 1

Seriously though, you've only got 2 eyes and it's awfully hard to find replacement parts ;)

If it's a CRT monitor you might try upping the refresh rate. The average person can see the refresh if it's less than 85 Hz. Most CRTs default at 60 Hz. I have one friend who claims to be able to see the refresh at 100 Hz.

Take care of your eyes. I think it goes without saying that if it continues Mr. Eye Doctor is required.

heck, some people claim to be able to see the difference between 1000 and 1001 frames per second, doesn't mean they can.

The human brain can detect motion at about 30 Hz, the eye can detect maybe up to 60 Hz but the brain can't handle that information.

Most likely this condition has nothing to do with his screen whatsoever (unless it's a really old really bad one) and certainly not with the refresh rate (a low refresh rate can cause headaches, not blurred vision).
What CAN cause eye trouble is poor illumination, having the screen set too bright in relation to the surrounding area.

He's seeing double because he's staring at objects too long. I have the same problem, but it's PERFECTLY normal(at least that's what the doctor said)..

Now, if he's can't see things far away, get to a doctor. My perscription is 20/500....Now, unless he wants to have eyes that bad, he better get to a doctor right now!

Hi..

This will solve your prob, as life is not worth living without the eyes.

A specialist doctor in the US that he termed as "20-20-20". It is apt for all of us, who spend long hours at our desks, looking at the computer. During a recent visit to an optician, one of my friends was told of an exercise for the eyes.
We Thought would share it with you.

"20-20-20"
Step I
After every 20 minutes of looking into the computer screen, turn your head and try to look at any object placed atleast 20 feet away. This changes the focal length of your eyes, a must-do for the tired eyes.
Step II
Try and blink your eyes for 20 times in succession, to moisten them.
Step III
Time permitting of course, one should walk 20 paces after every 20 minutes of sitting in one particular posture. Helps blood Circulation! And for the entire body.
Circulate among your friends if you care for them and their eyes.
They say that your eyes are mirror of your soul, so do take care of them, they are priceless...!!
