Blink Now Helps Your Eyes Cope with Computers

You may not notice it, but if you are like me who works (or plays) all day in front of computers, chances are you are suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome, a modern-day ailment characterized by headaches and blurry vision caused by staring too much at the computer monitor.

What to do for treatment. You can try having one of these Blink Now devices from Blaze that can be connected to your computer via USB. It features a little LCD that you hang in your monitor and it displays an eye staring at you and would blink every so often. In theory, seeing a blinking eye would make you blink more often, thereby reducing the strain on your eyes.

The Blink Now is available for pre-order and will begin shipping on mid-November, costing £49.99 (about US$78). Or you can simply remember to blink more often and look away from the monitor if your eyes feel tired. That one costs free of charge.
