1953 FIAT 8V SUPERSONIC

The coachwork was designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi at Ghia, and sits atop the chassis of an Otto Vu. Under the hood lies an example of the only overhead-valve V-8 that Fiat ever made, completely rebuilt to original specifications during an exhaustive 8-year restoration that also saw the transmission rebuilt, the bodywork smoothed out, the brightwork re-chromed, and the dashboard instruments and gauges restored. Now presented in like-new condition, it might be the best Supersonic left.

Yeah, I've really been struggling with eyestrain the past few years. I chalk it up to getting older. I've done a bunch of research into how to reduce it, and one of the things I've learned (and which really seems to work) is to not have bright, "projected" light (like light coming through a window) behind your monitor. And you also don't want light behind you so that it creates glare reflecting off your screen. So I've tried setting up my workspace accordingly. I've also set my desktop to very light colors to reduce the degree to which my screen acts like a mirror. For the most part it helps, but I still need to step away regularly. Ugh. (And Apple's mirror-like screens don't help at all.)

Do you mean just to see if I need glasses? Or is there a specific thing they can do regarding eye strain when looking at computer screens?

You might benefit from a new/different computer screen, or different lighting around the office.

If you "chalk it up to getting older.", then you might need glasses. You may be straining to see the closeup small crap.

Either way ...
tinted glasses might help.
I know a guy who carries two pairs of glasses. One is regular progressive lenses and the other is specific to computer screens.
If you wear glasses you know that's not as crazy as it sounds. You get tired of tilting your head back and looking down your nose to see the screen in focus.
Have you tried sunglasses? Or wearing a cap to shade your eyes from the overheads?
Or turning off the overheads altogether?

I had Lasik not too long ago, so I don't need regular glasses anymore. I've heard about special "computer" glasses, which I'm planning to look into. I generally don't use the overheads when I'm at my computer, which helps. As for squinting, I suppose there's a small component of that, but I really think it's mostly glare and sitting in front of projected light for too long. Nothing else gives me any kind of eye strain, so . . .
