    So when playing video games/computer will get you blind if you're under 18, you need your eyeglasses. But how about if you're an adult? Will get blind for playing video games/computers? Even with eyeglasses?

    Vote for it!

    I think something like this came with your Wii, but maybe you were too busy to read it:

    I can play video games in my sleep, however, I must be thinking of games before NREM sleep kicks in or it won't work because the only way I can play games without physical thought is during NREM sleep. Also, the game system has to be at hands reach on my bed which makes a handheld ideal for the job however if I sleep with a PS3 or Wii controller at arms reach and the system is on it will work. This is best done during a Full Moon (no I'm not a werewolf but everytime I'm successful it's a full moon out), I can also eat certain foods that can put me into near instant NREM easily like Turkey or some hams.

    If your eyes hurt from playing video games your playing too long or you shouldn't be playing it at all.

    Yeah it hurts my eyes. My vision is really horrible too, both eyes are at -7.00
    I hope I don't go blind, because that would suck.

    Play in well-lit conditions. Other than that, staring at a computer screen is no worse than reading a book.

    not really, reading codes and other programming stuff hurts my eyes.

    But, i guess the only hurt that came from playing games would be neck cramp

    Yeah, the computer does that too! O shit, after reading this thread....

    I think anything can hurt your eyes when not handled properly. Reading a book in the dark or in a wrong posture can do that too. So yes, I think video games hurt your eyes

    It used to strain my eyes and give me headaches but I guess I've just become immune to it!

    wat.



    No, really. Wat. It won't make you blind. It won't affect your eyesight at all unless you spend 12 hours a day gaming with your face four inches from the monitor.
