If you work in an office, chances are you’ve experienced eye irritation, including eyestrain, dry eyes, burning, and light sensitivity. While there are many contributing factors to “tired eyes”, the most important cause is that we actually blink two-thirds less often when we’re looking at a computer screen. Since blinking is how our eyes keep themselves moist, that’s a significant problem.
Other contributing factors include the fact that most of us open our eyes wider to look at computer screens, thereby worsening the dry feeling in our eyes. Extremely bright lighting in your office and an improperly set-up computer monitor can also cause irritation and strain on your eyes.
Working at a startup takes a toll on your body. Weight gain, lack of sleep, stress, carpal tunnel, and more.
My latest affliction is tired and irritated eyes. I thought I was just sleepy but I’ve been sleeping a lot. Going to try visine and see if that helps.
