It often happens to me that after learning the whole day and reading lots of text especially with small letters I feel my eyes very tired. Who knows good set of exercises that don't takes lot of time, that helps to prevent eyes tiring.

This doesn't seem like a question on Judaism. – Ariel K Jun 28 '11 at 19:42
@ArielK Can you provide more insight on why you think it's off-topic. After all, isn't it about Jewish Life? – yydl Jun 28 '11 at 22:48
@ArielK But many of the questions in product-recommendation are also not halacha and hashkafah. I think we ought to allow questions that are particular to Jewish life (in this case learning texts for many hours). Perhaps we should raise this on Mi Yodeya Meta? – yydl Jun 29 '11 at 2:11
@yydl This reminds me of a batch of questions from early days of SO: "What is your favorite food... as a programmer?" "What music is best... for a programmer?" "Which is the most effective coffee... for a programmer?". Just because it is relevant to you, doesnt mean its relevant specifically as a result of your Judaismness. – AviD Jun 29 '11 at 6:58
@Ariel Spending hours at a time reading fine print on a page is not something that comes up in many other contexts. It seems to me that this is a concern that comes up specially (if not quite uniquely) for people who spend a lot of time learning Torah. – Isaac Moses Jun 29 '11 at 15:58
