Study Links Computer Use and Glaucoma

Quote:
Using a computer day after day for hours at a time may be linked to the degenerative eye disease glaucoma, Japanese researchers reported in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

The scientists at the Toho University School of Medicine tested the sight of workers in four different Japanese companies, each employing more than 5,000 people. They found that people who were nearsighted were particularly at risk, reported BBC News Online.

The researchers divided the computer users according to how much they said they used their PCs. The heaviest users tended to be younger men.

The authors speculated that the suspected link between nearsightedness and glaucoma may stem from computer use-related eye strain, according to the BBC account. They recommended additional research to confirm their findings.
And of course we all know the preferred method of treatment......

I'm going in to see the eye doc tomorow for a bad case of "dry eyes" I've been dealing with for a couple years now. Miserable stuff. Hope they have a magic cure for that. I haven't been able to sleep thru the night for a looong time.
