Default Can you be blinded if

Can you be blinded later in your life if you stare at the computer screen at night with the lights of your room are turned off? I keep telling my aunt this is rediculous, but I have to ask some experts...is this true?

I believe it's true. Because your eyes are focused on the screen only.

There really needs to be an age limit on this board.

I'm just reporting what my aunt said to me, true story. I want to know if this is true. If they have an age limit, then they should also eliminate all you ignorant people: YOU.

what are you like 12 years old? you say you need to ask some "experts" so you make a post on a basketball forum?

reading anything in the dark makes your eyes strain... you won't go blind but it definitely will hurt your sight overtime. if you don't already wear glasses you will need them in the future.

I don't think it hurts much unless you do it like 10 hours every day in the night.
