Eye Surgery: Entry Eight

I have installed a program called Break Reminder on my PC. It pops up every 10 minutes (or whatever interval you want) to remind you to take a “micropause” – looking away and/or stretching for a number of seconds (also configurable). When it pops up, I spend ten seconds looking out my window, focusing on far-away objects. Then I close my eyes for a few seconds and relax them.

These simple things, which take about a minute each hour, brought my vision back to 20/20 after a regression. Everyone who works on a computer should do this, but especially anyone who has had eye surgery. If you value your new-found vision, take care of it.
