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 day look like they're large screens being projected 10 feet away. As I sit now, my face is 2 feet from my screens and 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 space 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 away, my eyes would thank me after a long day at the desk. Yes, I know it'll feel weird seeing your arms stretch out in front of you ten feet and walking with them on would take quite a bit of getting used to to say the least. But that brings another idea into play... Try playing sports wearing these 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.
