My eye doctor says that the burning sensation that I sometimes
experience is due to dry eyes. He recommends using "wet tears"
(*not* Visine) on occasion. The dry eye syndrome is caused by a
number of things -- not blinking often enough, HVAC systems in
office buildings, and fluorescent lighting. My dr. recommended that
I look away from my computer screen every so often (10 minutes or
so). He also mentioned that, had I the need to wear glasses, he
would add a slight rose-color tint (this is to reduce the effects of
fluorescent lights). He also claims this is one of the hazards of my
job, since writing seems to involve a lot of work on computers.
