If you are looking for Torch, you have come to the right place. We explain what Torch is and point you to the official download.

What is Torch?

Torch is a small application developed by Rune Kenneth Meisingset. It functions much like a flashlight, where a beam of light is reflected on the surface that it touches. In the case of Torch, the area closest to where the cursor is on the screen, is lit up. Moving the cursor will also move the reflection. In other words, the user is provided with a digital flashlight that they can use to keep their eyes focused on wherever the cursor is pointing at.

The developer has likewise published several other software programs, with the intention of providing utilities to help the user take care of their eyes while on the computer. Other eyesight improvement programs provided by the developer include Swing Windows, Variable Swing Screensaver, and Swing Windows Plugins.

An application dedicated to American ophthalmologist, Dr. William Bates (Bates Method) is also included. Quotes from the renowned eye doctor are displayed on the screen as pop-ups at specified intervals.

All applications are enabled on Windows systems. The user is advised to have the Master Installer package installed on the system prior to installing any of the applications, including Torch. The Master Installer enables all applications to run on the computer.

Download Torch from the developer does not provide software hosting. We send you directly to the developer's site, to make sure you download the latest, original version of the program.
