Breaks For Eyes

A Mac app to get rid of eye strain, dry eyes and fatigue

This Mac app reminds you to take a 20-second break every 20 minutes to look at something 20 ft (6 m) away. Taking breaks this often preserves your eyes from strain.

No eye strain means no eye-related problems (dry/irritated eyes, blurred vision, fatigue, headache), which can appear because of focusing on a computer screen for too long.

Hey hunters! Many of us spend a lot of time at a computer every day, don’t we? Probably, some of us have also had a headache, dry or red eyes or fatigue at the end of the day 👀 It's all the symptoms of computer vision syndrome (or CVS). About 90% of computer workers have it. If you're focusing on a computer screen for too long, your eyes don't recover from the strain, and it causes a bunch of eye-related problems 😞 Breaks For Eyes helps you overcome all the symptoms with a 20-20-20 rule, which is an efficient way to knockdown eye strain & computer vision syndrome! If you want to learn more about computer health and CVS, check out posts I wrote on Medium. They're attached above. There's a 50% discount for all hunters today 🙌 Take care of your eyes, take breaks!

Also just wrote a post on how (and why) we made Breaks For Eyes: https://medium.com/breaks-for-ey... Spoiler alert: it was highly-inspired by @nireyal and @rrhoover's book Hooked (if you're a product designer, grab it right now!). UPD: it's also available on the Mac App Store now: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1...

Something new that I didn't have before, but was looking for it. After increased concentration it helps to take a break for my eyes!

Yeah! Congrats on that. I will test and share my feedback, 'cause this is a real issue that should be solved.

Looks nice. Though sometimes I really need to concentrate on a task no matter if I have red eyes or not :) Does this app have a way to quickly turn it off or snooze?

@pavel_pavlenko yep, you can snooze all reminders for 30 min, 1h, 2h, 4h or until the next day (for super busy ones) 😉
