Remember Poor Health, Bad Lifestyles Cause Blindness, Not Television

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 8th 2012 | Views:

Have you not been told by your parent that watching TV for long periods can make you blind? If you believed that as a kid, it is alright, but scientific evidences do not buttress it any more than the old grandma tales. It is possible that your parents did not want to mislead you but where more concerned about your losing on the outdoor activities that you were expected to do to make you physically fitter. Take heart there isn’t a thing like losing your vision and you can watch Time Warner TV as much as you want, and you will be much better off than sleeping that much time.

The first televisions that where manufactured did indeed radiate, and radiation is harmful is a conclusion that cannot be contested. But remember that issued has been resolved long back and in more than fifty years not a single case of blindness has been attributed to watching TV. At best this is simply a myth that you can as well disregard. If you are still in doubt, have you not wondered how people sit before computers for 8-10 hours a day and never go blind?

Sitting before a television does cause strain, but no more than the strain from bright sunlight. It should be obvious to you that the light from your television cannot be any stronger than the light from the sun. But take the precaution not to fix your sight on the monitor, simple let your eyes wander and the strain you notice will nothing more than what you will get from reading a book with fine letters. The pupil in your eye has a natural mechanism that will shut off or simply reduce the aperture size to the optimum size so that not enough light will penetrate to harm your eyes.

Do you know that your eyes blink several times in a minute to keep your eyes moist? Staring at a television screen will not stop you from blinking. So be assured that watching television does no more harm than walking along a polluted street or getting infected by germs present in the atmosphere. The eyelids have all the mechanism to keep you protected from infection and the light from TV. Don’t forget that TVs are getting smarter these days and the light your eyes are no more harmful than the florescent lamp to which you may be exposed all day long.

However it is not the case that you watch television indiscriminately use it prudently and you will have no reason to regret. The more important thing you need to do rather than blame the television for all your vision ills is use proper reading glasses, avoid a dark room for watching television and finally get your eyes checked by a specialist. You will also need to take a proper diet that consists of adequate vegetables like spinach, carrots, potatoes and beans. Get good sleep and keep a safe distance from the TV or your computer monitor.

The primary reason why people go blind is not television; more often it is diabetes and ignored infections. So it makes sense to see a gastroenterologist or see an eye doctor to get your conditions evaluated on sound basis. Getting into an appropriate lifestyle is just as important. Sleep at least 8 hours a day, get enough daylight exposure, avoid alcoholic beverage however mild they may be and wear the right spectacles as prescribed by your doctor. Your eyes need as much exercise as your body does, and the best exercises are those that your doctor will tell you depending on your eye conditions. The next time you see someone who gone blind be sure that the culprit is not television.
