For this reason, we recommend using a computer monitor with a computer, not a HDTV screen.
Also, we highly recommend turning down the brightness of your monitor and increasing ambient light in the room, and look at objects at a distance at least once per hour, to help prevent eyestrain.
Eyestrain can give headaches, neck pain, dry eyes, and blurred vision.
