Do your eyes get tired after spending a lot of time looking at a computer or phone screen?  The Centers For Disease Control says it could be because you’re so involved with your Words With Friends Game, that you are forgetting to blink.  The agency tasked with looking after the nation’s health says forgetting to blink causes fatigue.  So, don’t forget to blink!

Squinting

The CDC also suggests you follow what they call the 20-20-20 rule. About every 20 minutes, look away at something about 20 feet in front of you. Keep your eyes on that object for 20 seconds.

My eyes were actually getting a little tired while I wrote this, so I gave it a try. Looking away at something for 20 seconds, really did make them feel better.  So, If your eyes are feeling strained, give it a try!
