Halloween just happened, the guys are busy, but not too busy to talk about video games! The new Last of Us Part 2 teaser has been released, and we’re wondering if the violence is too much. If you’re a regular listener, we’re open to video game related questions (serious or goof) to answer on the podcast. We’re also open to topic ideas. You can contact us on Twitter, the comments below, or on Facebook.

Everything You Need to Know About Gaming Glasses

Do you love gaming as much as we do? Are you spending hours every day (or week!) in front of a screen? Chances are that the amount of time you’re spending looking at the television or monitor is causing damage to your eyes. This damage can lead to eye symptoms such as double vision and blurring. We’re not trying to scare you, but give you the facts. In 2016 it was estimated that over 70 percent of people who find themselves in front a screen daily for extensive periods of time suffer from some sort of eye issue (also known as computer vision syndrome).

There’s a few reasons why gamers are at risk for developing vision issues from long-term screen use.

1) The text that you read on a printed paper or book has sharply defined edges, but those on a screen are made of pixels. These pixelated characters have blurred edges (ever so slightly), and can make it difficult for our eyes to focus. In an attempt to focus the blurred edges our eyes can be strained and become fatigued.

2) Unconcisouly while gaming for long periods of time people don’t blink. You can’t blink when you’re anticipating an enemy coming around the corner. On average a person blinks 17 plus times a minute. Those on a computer are blinking approximately 12-15 times a minute. The lower blink rate causes eyes to dry out, and can cause irritation.

3) Screen glare causes our eyes to strain and can be harsh on our poor eyeballs.

We found most of this information and more from this well researched study on Computer Eye Strain (it’s a bit dense, but informative!). Read More
