In a study of 1000 university employees, it was found that people were negatively affected by their time at the computer, regardless of age and gender.  According to researchers at Ohio State University, ergonomics, hours at the computer, and exercise had a great deal to do with the degree to which individuals were bothered by computer eyestrain and other related symptoms such as back and neck pain.  Source: Optometry & Vision Science (August 2007 – Volume 84 – Issue 8.)
