EyeDefender is a small and lightweight program which lives in your system tray. Essentially, it reminds you to take a break from staring at your computer screen for hours on end.
The basic idea here is that long usage of a PC may cause health programs and in many cases, it is proven. EyeDefender can be setup to remind you to take a break on an interval which is customizable. You can also customize how long breaks from your PC should be.
In addition to the basic reminders, EyeDefender can also play a slideshow of images from the folder that you define. The slideshow will be displayed until the break time is up. The slideshow itself is pretty and contains effects. You can also opt to run a screensaver instead.
EyeDefender is a fast program and didn't cause any slowdowns in our tests so it's not going to have your CPU running hot. It's also very simple to use and does not take any time to set up.EyeDefender features and highlights:
