Too Much Screen Time May Damage Children’s Eyes
A new study, published in the journal PLOS One, discovered that children of school age spending seven hours or more a week using computers or mobile video games had three times higher risk of developing myopia.
Rates of myopia, or shortsightedness, have been increased drastically over the world. Half of the young people in the USA or Europe have myopia, and the rated are even higher in Asia.
Dr. Christopher Starr, an ophthalmologist at Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City, says: “The reason why that's a problem is not so much that the device is sending some magic signal to the eye that's damaging it, it's that when you're on those devices you tend to be inside and not outdoors in the sunlight.”
