How can I protect my eyes from the sun's harmful rays?
Ellen Marmur, MD, Dermatology, answeredSunglasses = sunblock. Not only can a pair of shades look cool (the bigger and darker, the better!), but lenses that have "98-100% UV protection" help prevent skin cancer. If the sunglasses don't carry the American Optometric Association's Seal of Acceptance, have them tested at the store with a photometer that measures the lenses' UV protection. If the shades you like don't offer at least 98% protection, you can ask your optometrist to add a UV coating to the lenses.

How should I adjust my computer to help prevent eye fatigue?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredSet your computer lower on the table or use a portable computer so your eyes look down when you work. That way, the opening between the eyelids stays small, which reduces the risk of developing dry eyes.
You can also help relieve some irritation by changing your flicker rate on your computer to 70 or above.
