Are there studies on the correlation between the time a kid spends on studying which includes reading/writing/doing homework/using computer etc and any eyesight problems they develop?


Yes and no. I'm not going to link the study because I can't find it right now, but the general consensus I've found when looking into this matter is that there can be some temporary strain, especially associated with computer usage (14+ hours a day) or reading in low light, but that in general it all sorts itself out after a night's sleep. I have seen no evidence to demonstrate any long term ramifications of time spent studying on eyesight.

  • I hope that holds for adults as well.

  • That is what the studies I've seen seem to indicate. Tag me again if you want me to try and dig it up.

  • Only if you have it on hand, I would not worry otherwise.
