Eye Break Reminds You To Take Eye Rest (Web app)

In today's continuous busy-workplace, you may need to spend long hours in front of a computer looking at the monitor. It’ll create eyestrains as well as other physical problems. Suggested remedies for such problems are eye exercise and taking a short rest break from the computer monitor at a fixed time interval. However, most often people forget about the time when they are working at a computer. Here is how to solve it with an online tool called Eye Break.

Eye Break is a simple web app that reminds you to take an eye-rest every twenty minutes. When it reminds you to take rest, look at something at least twenty feet away, for at least twenty seconds.

 Eye Break requires nothing to install on your computer, just open this web app on your browser and keep your sound open. That’s all!

 In previous posts, I had written several articles related to computer eyestrain and its remedial measures (applications), for example, see this article.
