That means stop. I take breaks so my eyes can rest.

You can wear blue filter glasses, it helps. Sometimes stopping is not an option but if you can, that’s best.

Sometimes yes. If it’s bad I take a break.

Nope. But I have my monitor fairly dim. If I crank the brightness all the way up I will hurt in five minutes.

@Tropical_Willie nailed it. When I’m not in a position to actually take a break, I use the 20–20-20 rule & it works wonders for me. Occasionally, I switch it up to the 20–20-30 rule, giving myself an extra 10 seconds per repetition.When I’m so busy that I can’t 20–20-20, I use my favorite eye drops that help to add some moisture back to my eyes!!!

Sometimes, I changed my phone font to a larger view this weekend though.

When it happens to me, I force myself to take a reasonable break along with a drop or 2 of gel eye drops

Apparently it not blinking enough that is causing the problems.
Hence the breaks once in a while.
As for blue filter glasses..useless as an expert stated on TV health issues episode.
