Link between Episcleritis flare up and intensive computer usage

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi everyone, do you guys happen to know the link between Episcleritis flare up and intensive computer usage? Or should I ask, when your eyes flare up, did you happen to be in front of computer screens for a long time? Does staring at computer screen for a long time slow down the healing process or make your  eyes condition even worse? Sometimes, when my eyes flare up, I tend to link it to intensive computer usage. Hope heavy computer users with related experience can share their opinions here. Thank you.

    Hi- I just registered on this site and am very interested in this topic. I am dealing with Posterior Scleritis. I was diagnosed in June and just recently started on Methotrexate. In addition I have been on Prednisone since diagnosed because tapering off resulted in a relapse. I hope the MTX works.

    Anyway, I sit in front of my computer for hours each day. I do not have an option at work. In the last couple of days I started wondering if my computer usage is harming my chances for a remission.
