In my first week of busy season, I noticed a strange pattern. I saw two of my co-workers sitting near me routinely using eye drops while working. They let me know that they used them because their eyes could get uncomfortable while using the computer for 11 – 12 hours a day.
This interaction made me wonder about the consequences of staring at a computer screen for very long periods of time, especially while working during the day and studying for the CPA Exam in the evening. So I did a little research.
