I've spend many hours reading from the time I entered first grade. We didn't have kindergarten at my little country school, so I was introduced to Dick and Jane a few days after walking into that old building as a five year old. And for the last six years, I've spent many hours writing on a computer and lots of added hours promoting on the computer. That adds up to a number of things and one of them is eye strain.
Computers especially leave them feeling dry and tired. And like some many people, at one point I finally had to start using some reading spectacles. At first I only needed them for the newspaper but now I use them for most reading, needlework and I like to wear them when I eat.
If you are someone who only wears glasses part time like me (my distance vision is still excellent) than you know they are never in the room where you need them. Fortunately for me, reading glasses are cheap and easy to come by. I purchase mine at Michael's Craft Store. I have easily a dozen pair counting the ones I keep in the car. So often they all end up in one room. They are plastic and made of beautiful colors. I can match any outfit.
Another tool I enjoy sometimes when I write involves a different type of glass. It also comes in varied colors. I have some Zinfindale in the fridge right now.
Does using the computer cause you some eyestrain? What do you do for it? Do you misplace your glasses too?
