    May or may not be monitor related. Most people need them at a certain age. Speaking from experience.

    Maybe ask your doctor about "Night-Lenses" Lenses you wear at night and you then fully see at day, plus your eye "Regenerates" My Eyesight has improved by 5%!

    @iamavalos not true. It is *NOT* a myth. Short sightedness *MIGHT* be age-related, but it's usually the case for minors, for kids. Ever seen first-graders w/ glasses? That's because their eyeballs have not grown to the optimal shape yet.

    Elderly usually suffers from long sightedness, which is usually age-related

    long-lasting focus on things that are close, like a monitor, a book or some miniature work is tiring for eyes. If the focus is not changed often enough, one might eventually notice he can see quite well up close. But anything further looks blurry. The vision gets impaired. In such cases glasses might do even more harm, as eyeball lens will remain at the same flexed position and will no longer need to move, train [glasses will do their work instead]. Ever heard doctors say a term 'lazy eye'?

    If you're unlucky, glasses won't even help and you'll be stuck in a permanent state of blurry vision and tired eyes 🙃 help

    Welcome to 4-eye club, you will get used to them, 5 years ago I needed them only when I'm at computer or reading a book, now I have them on all day long. It's wierd at first, but then you tend not to even notice them

    I'm supposed to wear glasses. But i haven't really used them in over 8 years.

    Don't experience any issues at all. Just need to squint a little if i need to read something far away.

    @netikras afaik, eye strain from looking up close is only short term and does not have long term effects. Lazy eye is unrelated.

    There is correlation between not getting enough sunlight at a young age and nearsightedness.

    @electrineer eye strain is short-termed, caused by short-term looking up-close. But if you do that for 8 hours/day for months or years - ... :)
    you might not even notice you sight is getting worse at first, esp if only one eye is affected

    @netikras quite a long read but luckily it won't affect your eyesight: https://nature.com/news/...

    I also got glasses but they only have blue filter and it is amazing, my eyes get sore in 10 minutes without them, with them I can be 10+ hours on PC

    Reduce the blue color man, I heard blue damages the retina.

    @electrineer FYI:

    P.S. Why does everyone prefer blogs/newssites/other shitposts as a source of information to specialized websites?

    @EDWCode
    did your eyes get worse since 5 years ago?
  • 1
    @amirbig wouldn't say that they got that worse, still using same glasses, but my eyes definetely gets more tired without them, so I don't really have any choise and I spend at least 10 hours at pc daily, that also adds to that

    My eyes got worse after I bought an apple mac, bastard thing has the world's tiniest pixels. Anyhow I was in my mid forties at the time, now I need reading glasses as I can't focus on anything that is too close.

    @amirbig if you need glasses only now, I would consider yourself lucky, I'm nearing 23 atm, and had glasses for a while now

    Can you do what I did and get a 50" monitor ?

    I don't need glasses to read it.

    Could be an issue if I have to work elsewhere mind you..

    30 years ago you’d be glad you can wear glasses and not lost all of your hair by sitting in front of monitor

    Having save problem because I had a bad CRT monitor when I got my first computer. That ruined my eyes.
    Thinking about going for LASIK.

    Same. I had perfect vision, and didn’t really think anything was wrong, but... everything on screen is so much crisper with these on. *sigh*

    One issue I find wearing very strong glasses is lines are no longer straight but curved on a screen.

    This makes designing stuff difficult !

    @Nanos this happened to me for a while, the monitor bezel actually looked weird and windows looked like they pointed inwards at the top, the effect wore off / I stopped noticing after a while though.

    @AngryDev9981

    I've heard that laser surgery can in some cases leave people with a feeling as if they have grit in their eyes.

    Recommendation is to have one done at a time, then worst case, at least you have one eye working !

    Might also consider lens replacement, I think there are less issues there..

    I'd really like a pair something like these, so they don't hurt my ears..

    @iamavalos Okay.. What are your references? Do you mind if I asked you to share a link or two?

    weeelllll....

    "Environmental influences related to prolonged reading or near work as well as fewer hours spent outdoors are associated with a higher prevalence of myopia. A systematic review and meta-analysis to identify the association between time spent outdoors and myopia indicated a 2% reduced odds of myopia per additional hour of time spent outdoors per week after adjustment for covariates [47]. In our study, the association between near work and myopia indicated a 2% increased odds of myopia per additional diopter-hour of time spent on near work per week"

    @iamavalos in biology and medicine everything is about probabilities and risks :) Everything. That's the thing I hated the most. Immunology, oncology, ophtalmology, genetics, nephrology, etc, etc. Every field is manipulating with _odds_ and _risks_.

    Anyways... Just ignore me if you feel so :) Not going to continue this discussion

    But have you looked outside on a sunny day recently? I can't even open my eyes outside anymore. I've become a mole. Thanks VR Development!

    @electrineer

    We just need a version with better padding..

    Perhaps gel ?

    Can you also get magnetic implants too ?

    Oh I see they do a piecing now for glasses !

    @Nanos how can you continue on finding ways that look more and more painful
