Square eyes

By comedybreak - 30/10/2011 16:31 - United States

Today, my doctor told me that the reason I'm losing my eyesight is because I'm straining my eyes, and that the best thing for me to do is to limit my time in front of computers. I spent years in college to get my current job which involves sitting in front of computers. FML

Fyl... Dude

Double bad news if your Major was Internet porn like mine was

Oh you too? I double majored in Internet porn and Reddit. I dabble in 4chan, but people always post a picture of this cartoon bear when I ask for pictures?

1. Your picture frightens me.

Make a choice; your eyes or your job.

If he just followed the VSG guide lines and took his eyes off the screen for 5-10 minutes ever hour he would be fine

Get glasses.

Yah it frightens me too. ;) lol

Anyone notice the irony? He goes on FML, a website, to tell us that his doctor said to avoid computers.

Yea, if your work involves a lot of computer time, your "social life" shouldn't.

maybe you need a bigger monitor or some glasses made to reduce eye strain

What's more important, your eyesight or your job?

Supporting your family, mortgage payment, auto payment, other bills and financial responsibilities...? A Job is pretty important, but then again I guess you won't have said job if you're blind.

Its not easy to take on a whole new major. We're still stuck on what to do.

^ still do your work, but give your eyes a break every so often by looking at other things around the room, it's a bit like standing and stretching if you sit for long periods, the strain won't be so bad then.

2 - I'm surprised no one has said this before... But how could you possibly know that?? Lool.

I never got a badge for following up )': haha

Just take a little time off, hopefully you can find something else to do.

Don't think time off work would be very feasible especially if he has student debt to take care of. Perhaps a more likely alternative it to take longer breaks away from the computer. I recommend OP taking up smoking. It forces you to take regular and sufficiently long breaks. Besides, the fresh air is always a plus.

Wear sunglasses in front of a screen - works for me!

Sucks. That would have been my life too but I decided instead to destroy my ears by noises of planes. I destroy my eyes on the side!

Yikes! I'm sorry OP.. Maybe this will give you a reason to hook up your computer to a few HDTVs. *Silver lining*

go blind doing what I love?

pretty sure he meant the other thing

12, she is a unicorn not a prostitute, get ur shit together

It's possible to be both. It might be a bit awkward at times, but I'm sure she'll find a way.

unicorns are pure man, no way

laser corrective surgery might be a good alternative.

The years at college is nothing compared to the rest if your life without eyesight, it sucks, but should be a easy decision.

Gunnar's are for fags.

Gunnar eyewear :)

I feel your pain OP. My future job will be like yours. Wearing glasses as we speak and I'm still not out of the University.
