    What happens to your eyes when you stare at screens all day...

    We spend a lot of time staring at screens. Thereís the small screen in our pocket, the big screen we watch our shows on, and the medium screen that many of us stare into for eight hours a day to help pay for those other screens. Are all of these screens ruining our eyes?


    Probably not, although rumors abound. If you grew up with big olí tube TVs, you probably remember being told that sitting too close would ruin your eyes. Scientific American traces that myth to a 1967 recall of early color TVs that emitted radiation (like, actual radiation) that were probably harmful to health, as well as to a misunderstanding about nearsighted kids who sat close to the TV. Most likely, they sat close so they could see better; the TV didnít cause their nearsightedness.


    When it comes to the variously sized screens we stare at all day, there are some new myths (and facts!) about how they affect our vision.

    I always thought the big problem with screens and your eyes were the old CRT tvs with the concave screen. Flat screens eliminated that problem.

    Try staring across a tractor steering wheel at rows of field for 13-15 hours a day and see how your eyes feel.

    Earlier this week I was engaged in a project that required me to be on the computer nearly ten hours a day for several days and I began to develop some serious tunnel vision.

    You have to take an eye break. Or breaks throughout the work.

    I grew up on a cotton farm. I was to Young to work but I was old enough to sell my little sister to the neighbor kids for "farm help" , $5.

    Which part did YOU do?
    Make everything from toy guns that spark, to flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark. Itís easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred.

    When I was about five years old my grandparents had a cotton farm in West Memphis TN. On visit to the farm I was commandeered to help pick cotton. I don't remember picking much but it was a defining moment for me. After I completed one row I lifted my arms to the Heavens and said "As God as my witness I will never pick cotton again"! Someone told me that was a movie quote but if it was they stole it from me!!
