When I first got my Nook, my eyes got really sore when I read on it and even more sore when I played games for a long period of time so if I would have been asked this question, I’d have said, yes it bad for our eyes.
Well, according to this Good Question, it’s not. Go read it for yourself. What’s kind of funny is this doctor, Dr. Geoff Emerson, is my moms retinologist. I just had to share that.
So I guess it’s also true that what our parents used to tell us about sitting too close to the TV will make you go blind wasn’t true either.
My eyes do get sore at the end of a day but my eyes usually get more sore from the sun and wind than my computer or games. I’m not sure if my eyes adjusted to my Nook after a while or not because I hate to admit it but I haven’t held a “real” book in my hand in months. I guess we also should take fish oil and Ocuvite as we get older too just to help keep our eyes moist. That in itself can cause dryness which in some people is painful.
Do you find your eyes get tired and or sore when you’re on the “screens” too much? What other things bother your eyes? Do you take anything to help your eyes? My mom hates going blind and like she always says to us, “once you start to lose it, it’s too late. Take care of your eyes now.”
