10-16 hours a day here for 5 years, no glasses. And my eyes are tested every six months because of one of my meds, my vision is just fine.

Do you fear that computer use is causing you to need glasses?

I do find that I get eye strain when I spend excessive time staring at the computer screen in a dimly lit room. I make a point of turning on the light, and also using task lighting now, as well as trying to limit my time at the screen.

Perfect vision + 10 hours per day on the computer. My last eye doctor recommended reading glasses to prevent eye strain, but they caused problems when I wasn't wearing them.
