Far Away Glasses
Glasses that make near things look far and reduce "monitor headache"
I want glasses that can make the monitors I stare at all
look like they're large screens being projected 10 feet
away. As I sit now, my face is 2 feet from my screens
if I sit here long enough, I'll get a headache and my eyes
will get tired. I'll sometimes have to stare out into
because my eyes get tired of focusing so near. Humans
weren't meant to stare at a screen two feet away from
them for hours on end each day. We're supposed to be
looking out over the horizon for food. I never have this
issue looking at my projected screen in the living room.
It's a 120" screen about 12 feet away. If I could wear
glasses that make my LCDs look bigger and further
my eyes would thank me after a long day at the desk.
I know it'll feel weird seeing your arms stretch out in
of you ten feet and walking with them on would take
a bit of getting used to to say the least. But that brings
another idea into play... Try playing sports wearing
and you'll soon find yourself looking very stupid.
||I know you can get reading glasses set for the typical monitor distance, but I don't know if this is exactly what you want.
