Editors' Review

+

Anyone who spends a lot of time on the computer, either for business or pleasure, knows that hours of staring at a screen can take its toll on the eyes. Eyes Relax is a basic program that forces users to take periodic breaks to rest their eyes. Its features and ease of use make it a good choice.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with its features arranged in four tabs. Users can schedule both long and short breaks, specifying the duration of both the work time and break time. When it's time for a break, users have several options: the program can display a small dialog box advising users that it's break time, or the program can display a blank screen, a particular image, or a slideshow. Users can optionally set up password protection for the break time, and Eyes Relax lets users choose whether they'll be able to skip break times if they're in the middle of something they don't want to interrupt. The program has audio alerts that play in advance of a break, when a break starts, and when a break ends; all of these can be set to custom sounds or disabled. Users can even create separate profiles for different users or tasks. Eyes Relax has no Help file, but there was nothing about the program that we really had questions about. Overall, we think Eyes Relax is a nice way to ensure that your eyes get the rest they need during long hours at the computer.

Eyes Relax is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "GOOD SOFTWARE BUT VERY HIGH MEMORY-HOGGER"

    October 17, 2010   |   By kavitabhatt65

    Version: Eyes Relax 0.81

    Pros

    PERFORMS VERY WELL AS IT SAYS

    Cons

    VERY MEMORY-HOGGER ALMOST 23000 KB. I HAVE GIVEN TWO STARS ONLY FOR THIS REASON EVEN ANY FAMOUS ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE RUNNING IN BACKGROUND DOES NOT USE SO MUCH MEMORY

    Summary

    PROGRAMMERS SHOULD TRY TO REDUCE MEMORY USE. I HAVE GIVEN TWO STARS ONLY FOR THIS REASON. IF MEMORY PROBLEM IS SOLVED THAN IT IS A FIVE STAR SOFTWARE.
    LOW RAM SYSTEMS CANNOT RUN THIS PROGRAM. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 4 GB RAM, ONLY THAN USE THIS UTILITY. BECAUSE OTHER PROGRAMS ALSO NEED RAM MEMORY

    "Very Cool!!!"

    July 18, 2010   |   By soulspin

    Version: Eyes Relax 0.74

    Pros

    Reminds us that we should not sit here all day! (like I do!). It's FREE and from a genuine and kind person (read his comments on his site). Great, non-annoying sound notifications. You can even customize How you are notified.

    Cons

    Starts right away and I didn't know how to disable it. I did figure it out pretty quickly, but to see the clock counting down was odd...I think I've watched too many crime/ solving shows. heh

    Summary

    Everyone who spends a lot of time in front of a computer should download this.

    "Not very good"

    January 19, 2009   |   By Nikita

    Version: Eyes Relax 0.43

    Pros

    Nice tray icon.

    Cons

    Onnly one type of a break (you can't set a micro and long break). Resource hog - 10-15 MB of memory is too much for such a progy.
