I don't wear these, nor have I seen anyone wear these. I wear reading glasses (variable bi-focals actually). They are coated for glare and I do not have any issues. I use my laptop many hours per day.

I no longer see screens on LCD / LED screens either.

Is it is big problem?  It is not a major issue amongst my clients and colleagues.

I do have Gunnar computer/gamer glasses that I put on occasionally at work. There are days where I am in front of the computer all day, doing research, entering data, and so on. On those days when my eyes start to feel strained and tired, I put on my computer glasses. And for what it's worth, they really do help me. I can feel the difference right away.

-And I agree with John, I have not seen anyone other than myself and my colleague, who referred them to me, wear these type of glasses.

I usually just look away periodically and let my eyes focus at a different distance or look out a window from time to time when the screen is refreshing.  The new screens don't reflect background fluorescent lights like the old CRT's.

It has never caused me a problem but I worked one guy years ago that had to quit because he got frequent migrain headaches.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

If I watch a LED screen too long I go almost completely blind and eye rest is the only solution.

People with vision problems should see a doctor. I do not get eyestrain from my laptop.

For what it's worth.  My wife used to have a sleeping mask that had a filling of that blue liquid like in cold packs.  The cold on her eyes seemed to help.

She worked as a bookkeeper and had frequent migraine headaches.  She would keep it in the freezer and would put it on and lie down.  I don't really know for sure if it was the cold helped swelling or the lack of light input that helped her.  And, I have no idea where she got it.
