Maybe you're myopic or astigmatic? Did you ever get that checked out? Myopia usually doesn't just come with birth, although the tendency to develop it does, so you won't notice you may be a little myopic when you're young, but it progresses with age. I used not to notice it so much, but ever since like two years ago I noticed I can't see very well stuff that is far away (fuck's sake, I can't properly see something about 2 meters away, and I'm not even exaggerating) and have been officially diagnosed with myopia a few weeks ago and now I'm wearing glasses. And it's surely not just because I spend most of my time using the computer, but mostly for genetic reasons.B-$hep wrote:When i was like 5-6 years old i was in bus stop and bus was coming that was almost 70-80 m far away or something like that, i could perfectly see what bus is coming. The bus nr was very small.
Now i see just 1 m and rest is slightly blurry, just cant see so perfectly clearly.
1m away from monitor and i already cant read this text here.
My eyes get better if i dont use PCs and of course they say that you must take small breaks from computer and look somewhere far far away, into specific point, this should do good as they say.
Of course, it's always recommended to take periodic breaks from the computer, not only because your eye may get tired (but most likely not damaged), but also because staying in (mostly) the same position for a long time is rather not a good idea. But yes there's this "20-20 rule" which says that for every 20 minutes you spend on the computer (or just doing something that requires that you focus your eyes on something near), you then spend 20 seconds focusing on something farther away (a.k.a. the "20-20-20 rule" where for every 20 minutes you spend on the computer, you spend 20 seconds focusing on something 20 feet away, but screw imperial measurements). But yeah spending a long time will usually just get your eyes tired, not seriously damage it or give you myopia/astigmatism.
