unrelated question - how do you stop your eyes from hurting after looking at code all day?

Only read well-written code.

some time last year i started doing serious eye exercises, and they've helped. i still do the old temple rubs but massaging below the eyes feels incredibly comforting. eyebrows and some forehead rubs are good, too. i haven't really read anything definitive in terms of what works and what doesn't though, so i've just been trying random stuff. also, monitor position, body posture, and neck and head position i find help a lot, weirdly enough

i've only ever coded professionally in dark mode, so i'm not sure if light vs dark mode has any effect, personally
