Lightweight tool to help you take regular eye breaks to prevent eye strain.
Spending long periods in front of your computer may lead to digital eye strain. Taking breaks at regular intervals will help to ease this strain and to protect your vision. A good rule is to follow the 20-20-20 rule, recommended by the American Optometric Association, to keep your vision intact for the future. As per this rule, every 20 minutes, take your eyes off your computer and look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Boost 20-20-20 will guide you through this process by opening a new tab on your browser every 20 minutes as a reminder to you. This is a must-have extension for computer professionals with lower back (spine) related problems, neck pain, eye-strain related headaches, and red-eye. Repetitive stress injury (RSI) and eye strain are common ailments among computer users. Taking a break every few minutes is going to save your health and vision. Eye Strain 101.

Although it was somewhat annoying to have the beep every 20 mins, it really helped me relax my eyes after staring at the screen for 20 mins straight. Definitely recommend!
