What’s protectyourvision.org: Protectyourvision.org is a free online application aimed at protecting eyes from a Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).
What’s CVS ?
Around 70% people in developed countries experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing a computer screen for more than 2 hour daily. The level of discomfort appears to increase with the amount of computer use.
The most common symptoms of CVS are:
eyestrain - headaches - blurred vision - dry, irritated eyes - double vision - difficulty refocusing the eyes - neck and shoulder pain
If any of these sounds familiar to you it’s about time to take care of your eyes.
How to use ?
Switch on your personal eyes assistant (EVO) every time when your’re going to use computer for more than 2 hour. Simply go to www.protectyourvision.org website and click “Start EVO”.
You can choose between 3 different modes:
1. 20-20-20 – after every 20 min spent in front of a computer a 20 sec break is signalized, in this time focus the eyes on an object 20 feet (6 meters) away, or just close your eyes.
2. 60-5 - after every hour spent in front of a computer a 5 min break is signalized with a sound alarm.
3. Custom – define by yourself break's frequency and length. By default: after every hour spent in front of a computer a 5 min break is signalized with a sound alarm.
Find out which mode suits you.
During the break avert your eyes from a computer screen, close them or do eyes gymnastics.
Enjoy safe computer use.
