Don't Squint!

Research says...
People who squint while staring at computer screens also blink less than normal, which dries and irritates their eyes, researchers said this week.

“Blinking rewets the eyes. So if your job requires a lot of reading or other visually intense work, you may be blinking far less than normal, which may cause eye strain and dry eye.”

People squint for good reasons — it can make objects appear more clearly defined and it can cut glare. But blinking less dries the eyes and can irritate them, although the effects are temporary.
Do I squint? No idea. :P
