Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • Though I've always been prone to dry eyes and migraines (not an more issue than in past) since starting my new job I have my dust allergies and fluorescent lighting to contend with - postal outlet. Where I used to be able to work on computer for a few hours before my eyes went "crazy" it's only about 15 minutes now. I depend on being able to work on my computer as a photographer and writer. Not to mention communication via FB and emails. It also has stopped me from doing some online things that are work-related. I can't even watch a movie on the computer for long before my eyes are affected. I've always had a "constant headache" when I am asked to focus on it. I wouldn't call it a headache but a dull pain/pressure in my head. Different from my migraines which are largely hormonal. I've had an ocular migraine which scared the shit out of me, and when I discovered it could be caused from my birth control I stopped that! I haven't had one since.
