    Does anyone else besides me have eye fatigue after using an iPad for a length of time? Does anyone have any suggestions to relieve or head off eye fatigue? Then again, I just might be getting old.

    Hmm, should I even go there!!!

    I bought a pair of reading glasses at the beginning of the year and fatigue and eye strain (should that be iStrain?) are now a thing of the past.

    Also, ensure that your screen brightness isn't turned up too high.

    A pair of reading glasses helps me a lot. I find that if I use them my eyes don't get tired on longer usage of any of my devices.

    I do very much that is why I kept my Kindle for reading. It is much easier on my eyes.

    I'm not an oldie but others may beg to differ. I think using anything an extended amount of time will cause iStrain (catchy)

    I tend to keep the brightness all the way down, and when my poor old eyes are feeling extra sensitive, I've found that tilting the iPad slightly away from me dims it further. 

    I haven't resorted to wearing my Ray Bans, yet....

    That's what I was thinking. A bunch of old people complaining about bad eyes.
    Go see a doctor. :D
