Why is it that I can look at a slot machine in the casino for several hours (bad, bad girl), watch television without blurriness unless I watch a  long, long movie and even then it's not that noticable...but CANNOT look at a computer screen for more than a few minutes before everything blurrs?  I have noticed it is worse during a fibro flare.  I have turned down the brightness...bought glasses designed to wear only at the computer...does anyone else have this problem and could it have anything to do with fibro?  My eyes stay blurry for about ten minutes after getting up from the stupid computer...just this short post and my eyes are blurry!

Donna, if I'm on the computer for long periods of time reading, my vision is blurry, too.  I'm not sure if it's caused by fibro or not.  I try rubbing my eyes and that makes things worse.  I don't realize that things are blurry unless I try reading something.  Then I have a problem focusing my eyes.  But, as you said, it does go away.  I've been trying to sit further away from the monitor.  I sometimes find myself practically on top of it.

thanks, Sherrine...I wouldn't think too much about it except it starts within minutes of looking at it.  The eye doc told me computers are ruining peoples vision...that's when she suggested the glasses I had made.  The print on the screen stays clear for quite awhile, but when I look away after only a few minutes, everything is a blurr.  See why I can't finish my book???

I've had that blurry vision at the computer too. Strange, isn't it? But I just got my eyes checked, and they are fine. It's easier for me to stop worrying now :)

The reason that our eyes get blurry is because when on a computer, we tend not to blink and our eyes start to dry out. That is why we need to rub them.

I have the same problem.

Some of us are getting a bit older as well and the muscles that change the focus of our lenses in the eye lose the ability to work quickly like they did when we were young. I found a page that will help your eyes relax... or not.

Scroll about half way down this after you click Then click on one of the pictures... Enjoy~
