Hello, @aairahshort!

Hopefully there is never pain involved while typing! As with any physical movement, too much can cause strain. While you shouldn’t be typing long enough to cause issues, there are a few simple tricks you could try to ease the strain. If you’re a glasses-wearer, switch up between glasses and contacts and look into blue light filtering lenses. You can also find special brightness settings on many devices - look to lower the brightness, switch to “night” or “dark” mode, and use a blue light filter when possible.

Stay safe!
