Yeah, that does work! I've been doing that for years! You gotta move around if you're gonna be in one spot!

I've always fancied a pair of Gunnar glasses for my PC have never splashed the cash though given the prices (I'm also sure you can probably get the same thing cheaper not from Gunnar).

There are also a few software programs like F.lux that claim to make things easier on your eyes as well.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

@Teknikal: interesting glasses, bookmarked

@gezoyte: The above reminded me: Since Apple introduced "Night Mode" (warmer colors, less blue) , I use it almost permanently, as it is much easier on my eyes (I sit in front of a computer all day too) . Did you give that a shot yet, if it makes a difference for you?

Hmmmm. Good idea! Honestly, I didn't know that and have never used it! Wonder if I can get that on my iPad? Looked in display/brightness and didn't see an option for that.

I cannot remember if I had to activate in the Settings first. If yes, it's under "Display & Brightness". You can even set it to automatically switch on, and set the color temperature.
Then, when swipe up to get the CommandCenter (or whatsitcalled), I have a big button "Night Shift: On".

However, if I recall right, they only added Nightmode with iOS 10.
