Eyes Relax prevents eye strain from using computer long hours

Working on a computer for hours creates many problems like eyestrain, light sensitivity problems, etc. One of the recommended solutions for such problems is taking a short rest break from the computer monitor every hour. Eyes Relax is one such free tool that reminds you about rest-time and save your eyesight. This is an ideal tool for people who sit long hours in front of a computer monitor.

You can customize the duration of your work time and length of breaks (in minutes). During the break time you may exercise your eyes - look away or look at distant objects, etc. You can also password protect the program from disabling the ‘break’- useful for protecting children who plays video games much too long time, forcing them to take breaks.

Previously I posted a topic on one such tool EyeDefender that can also consider here. Eyes Relax can be downloaded from here or here. The program is straightforward and very easy to use. Required Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 for Windows XP. Supports Windows XP and Windows Vista
