  • hi, not sure if your able to answer my question. I’m looking for reassurance and advice. I’m 36 and had a complete pelvic floor repair 7 weeks ago. two weeks into my recovery and I was in hospital with pneumonia, I feel this has undone my surgery and feel my uterus descending again. iv had a check up and they’ve confirmed my uterus has begun descending again.

I have asked my gyne all these things but they seem hesitant to answer until the 12 week recovery period is over
    thanks so much

  • My eye gets strained in the morning when I wake up with dry eyes and if I focus on something like the clock to soon, then the eye just pops as if somebody just poked me. It stings and hurts and I get blurred vision. It can last for hours but what I do to relieve it is I go back to sleep. Sleep another hour, wake up and for me, it just magically goes away. Vary frustrating condition.

  • Hi Michelle! I tried kegel exercise for the first time and out of enthusiasm I tried to do more…! Now I feel little tired and pain in my pelvic muscles. If I give my muscles rest for few days will the pain go away? Plss help me I’m scared

  • I have blurred vision through one eye only and I think it’s due to extended screen time. Is that an eye strain? Will that go away?

  • Hi Dr. Allen, does the visibly slight, indoor tint of Transitions lenses, provide some protection from computer screens or cellular devices? Or is it just my imagination? If there’s some protection, to what degree?
    Thank you!

  • Dr. Allen, probably many people are like me and already asked, but…. will my 1 month constant eye strain and blurry vision (my right eye only) when looking farther objects ever go away? I can’t even get 2 hours of doing my IT job without getting pain. I’ve started doing your exercises with alarms and timers and they do have a relief effect, but the eye strain comes back again shortly.

  • Thanks for this, but I discover that some experts say that what causes eyestrain is not the light from the computer or other screen devices but instead, it is THE TIME SPENT (continuous long use) in facing one. For further info, I would like to share with you what I found out!


  • Is anyone experiencing difficulty reading far away screen? i experience it alot and i hate it so much.. because maybe of crying too much and playing all day and online classes…

  • I stare at computers for about 8-10 hours a day, I actually don’t feel such eye strains, should i still need those computer classes.
    Another thing is that, can my eye adapt to such strain and not damage?

  • Damn, I have a bad dry eyes symptoms. My eyes getting red and pain. And what I did is get cold compresses, but in this video said otherwise. Maybe that’s why my eyes get more redness. Omg thanks for the information

Another provider told me diabetes type 2 my muscles can’t get the sugar from my blood so that may be why muscles feel tired? I’m also testing myself with a meter a few times a day. Do I still need to walk after work somehow? I just want to rest for the next grueling day.

  • I have cataracts and need to get up close to the screen, even if I adjust the fonts. I find that my vision blurs a bit after being on the computer for long periods of time. Can I do anything to help this out? Thanks.

  • I feel I have a hard time with this when playing certain games (splatoon and tf2) due to how I need to look in the distance and make something out of a few pixels, or being able to still realize 3D space constantly. I tried some of these exercies and I feel they’re a step in the right direction, thanks mate. I’ll also see an eye doctor cause I haven’t in too long after having “perfect vision” that I’ve begun to question

  • This is a really useful video! Thanks for the tips and advice. My dad who is 92 years old and wanting to start excercising sure is going to enjoy these!

  • Thanks for the common tips..i practice tjose but they somehow do not help my eyes. Is there any research on bad effects of blue light?

  • Bit late (Unsure if you’ll respond but if so then awesome!) but…
    Is sitting further away than “High Five distance” better? as long as you’re not straining to see small details?
    Just had cataract surgery in my right eye (Had to be my good eye didn’t it…) and went for a toric Distance IOL and anything less than an arm’s length away is out of focus. (Waiting on a proper Toric contact lens for the other eye so hopefully I can see better up close)
    Is eye strain/dry eye less likely to occur because I’m sitting further away? or because it’s a computer screen, constant bright images etc. I’m still susceptible to eye strain?
