Valarie Morris <vmorris -at- VMCOMM -dot- COM> asks--
Does anyone else experience eyeburn in the line of duty? I
wonder about the long term effects. Has anyone read or heard
of any research on this subject?
Could you please describe what you mean by eyeburn. Are you
talking about eye strain? Are there visible symptoms when you
look in the mirror?
I may be experiencing it...but I need to know what it is.
Another possibly related question: How many of us wear eye
glasses? I do.
(Health concerns of the technical writing profession are
important; but if this is considered off topic, I'll shut up.
OTOH, it's gotta be closer to topic than how much we like or
dislike someone's signature. ;-) )
