Hi Darryl!

Yes! I have been on ZOOM pretty much all day for work and experienced focal seizure. I have found help there are blu ray blocking glasses, I haven't experienced seizures since!

I sent a link for amazon (this is the stylish pair I wear :D There are plenty of cool ones out there!

Hope this helps be well!

When I get a Migraine I usually take my Migraine Medications & then put a
"Ice cold washcloth over my forehead W/ a towel over my pillow"
I also have two pairs of "almost BLACK Perscription Sunglasses" I use as
eye shades~ The weight of regular eye shades would hurt my head too much.

The DARKER THE SUNGLASSES THE BETTER !!!

I agree with both of youy concerning taking breaks whenever you need them
if your neck hurts or you have problems with your eyesight.
ONE thing that also helps while working on your computer is making sure you have a "Good bright light source near your desk"
ANOTHER thing, make sure that the room is at a "Comfortable temperatutre"
NOT TOO HOT or Cold But inbetween & make sure you also have a glass
of something cool to drink. Staying hydrated is VERY IMPORTANT !!!

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I agree with taking a break sometimes I get a sore neck typing on my phone and just give myself a break sometimes from replying to texts or emails and give my neck a massage x x
