TCS is bad for my eyes lol.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
That's right, I went to the eye doc yesterday and I found out I need glasses for reading, driving at night, the computer, and watching tv. Im not sure when this all began, I used to have 20/20 vision, but apparently all the time I spend zoned out on tcs (at work) has altered my vision a bit. The side effects of TCS have taken over me (not too bad I think my vision was like 28/29). I was thinking of contacts until I found out I have an astigmatism and that my eyes are probably too sensitive to mess with em. So just call me 4 eyes (this will be my first time ever having glasses). I am actually kind of excited... I got me some Coach frames (might as well look good while I wear em)... Cost me $299 for the exam, lenses, frames, and an extra test... I got an awesome discount (around $65 or more off) because my father used to be a union member. I'll have to post a pic when I get em (in about 2 weeks) so you can tell me if I made a good decision on my frames!!!!

Good to hear it wasn't as bad as you thought. Glad you got the discount!

I think I already have the beginning stages of that or tendonitis from when I was a hairstylist. It is much better now that I dont do hair fulltime.

Well I have been wearing glasses since I was about 1, so all I can say is welcome to the "four eyes" club!

It's called GETTING OLD Just Kidding.

Seriously though that's the toughest time I'm having right now. I'm in IT and there are days I go home nausous because of the fact that I've looked at the computer screen for 8 hours that day.

Without contacts or glasses I think I would be close to being considered legally blind (contacts are -8.00 in one eye and -7.50 in the other). I also have a slight astigmatism.

The only thing I can suggest is blinking. When we look at a computer, often times we forget to blink. So our eyes dry out and in short that's how you strain your eyes. So keep eye drops at work and BLINK!!!!

My eye doc told me that every two hours I should look away from my computer for twenty minutes and to look long distance if possible. I've been trying to follow this. My vision isnt too bad but I do have an astigmatism in my right eye. So glasses feel weird to me right now especially since the curvature in one is differnet than the other.!
