Dear Computer Lady,
I just needed to know the name of the eye saving program you mentioned you used. I am having problems with my eyes and am spending toooo long on my computer without taking breaks. My eyes get very tired among other things.
The acupuncture doctor feels it is probably caused by tension in my neck and eye strain. That program sounded like something that could help me, any other ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance-Donna
The program you are asking about is called, Work Rave and you can find it at: http://www.workrave.org/
Workrave is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury, but it would also be great for your eyes as long as you look away from your computer screen during the rest breaks.
The program frequently alerts you to take micro-pauses, rest breaks, and even allows you to set a daily limit.
I have used Workrave on all versions of Windows, including Windows 8 and it works great. I usually stretch my neck during the 30 second micro-breaks, and get up and walk away from my computer during the longer rest breaks.
