Editors' reviewYou can schedule breaks to reduce eye strain, but you can't do anything else with this simple application. Eyework doesn't offer an interface or help file; its three options are found by right-clicking on the icon placed in the system tray after installation. You can choose intervals of 15 or 60 minutes, or quit the program. Placing your cursor over the icon displays the time left until a break, and the icon blinks continuously until the selected time expires. Once a break starts, an animated bouncing ball is displayed on a black screen. The breaks only last a minute, but you won't be able to work on your computer until it's over. Eyework takes up minimal system resources and the program is free. Anyone can use this uncomplicated utility to schedule regular breaks.
Help reduce eye strain by having an exercise break. Eye exercises are at timed intervals. Sits in the system tray and flashes when countdown is running. Can stop exercise at any time. Nice looking ball is used for the eye exercise. Low on system resources when in countdown.
