Help for "Computer Vision Syndrome"

Do your eyes get dry and irritated after surfing the net?  It's called computer vision syndrome and up to 70% of computer users suffer from the condition. Don't worry, a few tears can help.  Experts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham say people blink less while they're on the computer, which means they don't produce tears.

Researchers suggest taking omega3 supplements, to help stimulate production in the tear ducts. Or try applying a hot compress to the eyes to open the glands. Artificial tears may also help you find relief.
