Sure, you can be a visionary even without your eyesight, but why ruin it with the use of your cell phone and computer?
How often have you reached for your cellphone in the middle of the night only to feel like you were literally being blinded by its brightness. This feeling wasn’t just a hunch. Long-term exposure to sudden bright light from your cellphone or computer screen can damage your eyes.
It’s got a fancy name – photo-oxidative damage – when light reacts with the retina to produce molecules that are reactive to the surrounding molecules in the eyes – but all you need to know is that these sudden bright lights can be harmful to your eyes.
Little Stevie Wonder was a 12-year old musical prodigy without sight, but you needn’t join him by losing your own. Turn down the brightness of your cell phone or computer at night, or allow your eyes to adjust to light slowly. You’ll save your vision, and get to keep your illuminated genius, too.
