Can Computer Screens Damage Your Eyes?


Studies have shown that computer screens are having an adverse effect on our vision, but only when the user’s head is more than 20 inches away from the monitor. When the distance between your eyes and screen is less than 20 inches, it has been shown to cause eye fatigue. However, viewing a computer screen up close for long periods of time can induce dry eyes, blurred vision, and reading difficulties in some people. Whether or not the damage will be permanent remains unclear at this time due to mixed evidence.
