sI’ve seen products in the past like the game thumb to help cut down video game sores, but this is the first I’m seeing about a pair of glasses that help your eyes blink during times of extended screen viewing or book reading.

When your eyes are focusing on a screen they automatically blink less, causing them more strain and dryness.  The Wink Glasses from Masunaga Optical force your to blink no matter how hard you fight the urge.

If you go 5 or more seconds without blinking, the transparent liquid crystal sensor attached to the frame of the glasses turns the lenses opaque, “naturally” making you blink.  After you do so, the glasses reset and clear.

At a price of $445, I can’t imagine any insurance would that cover this item.
