Darwin J. Liao, MD, MPH and Brian J. Carey, M.D, Seattle Ophthalmologists, discovered the tiredeyes.com product at COMDEX'99 last month and immediately understood the benefits for their computer using clients. "In addition to proper preventive measures to reduce eyestrain, such as monitor positioning and moistening the eyes with frequent blinking or use of artificial tears," states Dr. Liao, " bifocal wearers experiencing symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS) with prolonged computer use, may further benefit from the use of PC Lens(R)."
