Yeah, my vision is much worse than it was when I started doing full-time computer work five years ago. Like, way worse — sometimes when I'm outside I literally just can't focus on things a little far away. Weirdly it's not like this all the time, and seems to be much worse after a day of working. I'm sure general ageing is related but I'm convinced focusing on tiny details on huge, bright screens in relatively darkened rooms is a big factor.

"getting older" affects eyesight over decades, unless your eyes actually get "sick" and degenerate rapidly. Computers accelerate the process.

Eye sight getting worse due to bad light conditions has been debunked for a while. It's an urban legend parents tell their kids to stop them reading under the blanket when they were supposed to sleep.

edit: Furyo what you talk about is probably CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome) which is only temporarely and doesn't damage the eye.

This.

Also; using your eyes more makes them better since they are just regular muscles that should be kept in shape.

Still when i took the 24" screen i had at work back home, after 10 minutes of utilisation in the dark I had tears rolling down my cheeks :cry:

From the joy of stealing it?

I bought it 60 euros at a sale at auction when they were liquidating the company, happy times
