Hi,

According to my optometrist i'm suffering from dry eyes due to lack of blinking so I'm looking for an app that will help me observe the 20-20-20 rule (every 20 mins look away from your screen at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds) which supposedly will help me remember to blink more...

I've yet to find any ios apps that can do this. Can anyone recommend an app that would work for this?

Thanks,

Kevin

If you have an iPhone or use Sierra, you could ask Siri to remind you every 20 minutes comes to mind if you cant find an app.

Good idea! Unfortunately Siri said she can't remind me that frequently :(

I found out from my Naturopath that I was deficient in Vitamin A and I also had dry eyes. Will see this winter, as my issue arose when the heating season arrived.
