mpq_guide_headerMarvel: Puzzle Quest is the latest surprisingly-enjoyable game based upon the Marvel franchise. If you love the RPG mechanics of D3 Publisher’s Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords but think it would be cooler with comic book heroes, then this could well be the game for you.

eye strain fatigue

Between phones and handheld games, laptop or desktop computers, and televisions, most of us spend a lot of time staring at screens these days. Many of us even use them during the work day, then for several hours in the evening.

No doubt you’ve suffered from eye fatigue as a result — your eyes feel dry and itchy, your vision is blurry, and you’re more tired than you should be. These symptoms are distracting and waste your time, but what can you do about it?

Help minimize your eye strain related to digital displays with these two easy tips.

1: Blink more often

2: The 20-20-20 rule

Every 20 minutes, focus on something at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. This acts as a resetting mechanism.
