For the last few weeks my eyes have really been bugging me. They feel tired all the time. They itch and burn and water. I thought it was my contacts, so I took them out and wore my glasses for a day. It helped a little, but not much.
Then I thought maybe it was my eye makeup. I got a new tube of mascara, thinking the old stuff was dry and flaking off into my eyes. That didn’t do much either.
So for the last two days, I’ve gone entirely without eye makeup. I look like some sort of feral animal with beady little eyes, but it has helped a bit. At least I can freely rub them when they start to itch and burn without turning into a raccoon.
After all this trial and error, I think I’ve figured it out. And I’m not encouraged. Because if I want my eyes to feel better on a regular basis, I think I’m going to have to spend less time on the computer. I sit in front of my work computer for 9-10 hours a day. Then I come home and do the blogging/Flickr/Sudoku/Photoshop thing, often for several more hours.
So if I’m not around to your site as often, you’ll know why. Oh, who am I kidding? I don’t want to give up my blogging habit, but quitting my job isn’t really an option. So do you have any suggestions for me?
