Computer Use Link To Eye Disease

Heavy computer use could be linked to glaucoma, especially among those who are short-sighted, fear researchers.

Glaucoma is caused by increased fluid pressure within the eye compressing the nerves at the back, which can lead to blindness if not treated.

The findings, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, are based on 10,000 Japanese workers.

The authors and experts recommend more research, particularly because being short-sighted is a known glaucoma risk.

I don't know if it's related, but I would heartily recommend that anyone who is spending much time with PC and uses a CRT monitor (and yes, if you don't know what it is you probably have one - those cubes) and switch to a LCD screen. Nowadays the prices have come down to very decent levels. A 15" LCD monitor will do for a replacement of your old 17" CRT screen, the size in practice is virtually the same. It is very much easier for your eyes in the long run.
