Are electronics bad for our eyes?
Are electronics bad for our eyes?

Are electronics bad for our eyes?   Nine hours per day -- that's how much time the average American spends in front of cell phone, tablet, computer or television screens. All that screen time is causing eye strain and other vision problems, according to a new report by the Vision Council, a nonprofit trade association. Researchers surveyed more than 7,000 people and found that screen time is steadily increasing for kids and adults. Over the past year, the number of people who admitted spending 10 hours per day on electronic devices rose 4 percent. “Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults experience digital eye strain as a result of the growing use of these devices," the researchers wrote in the report. "Adults aged 18 to 34 report feeling eye strain at a higher rate (45 percent) than their older counterparts.” Constantly staring at a screen can lead to a host of problems, said Douglas Lazzaro, MD, professor and chairman in the Department of Ophthalmology at SUNY Downstate Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y.   credit:
