If you suffer from dry eyes brought on by sitting in front of a computer all day and don’t have much success with regular eye drops, try Optrex Dry Eyes Lubricating Gel (available from pharmacies). The negative effect of computer use on the eyes is one of the most commonly reported health problems at work. With most people now working from computers, many clock in thousands of hours in front of the screen each year, which can be damaging to the eyes. See an ophthalmologist if you have an eye problem that is seriously bothering you. Also, be in the habit of taking a break from the computer screen every two hours to give your eyes a break.
