Sitting Close To A TV Will Ruin Your Eyes
This is a myth that began years ago when there was, yet again, another point where people freaked out about new technology in the world of television. Many kids kept sitting close to televisions as they were growing up. Slowly but surely, these children began to need glasses.
Therefore, the assumption was that sitting too close to the TV made this happen to them. In reality, children with already bad vision sat closer to TVs. These same kids also put a book close to their faces to see it too. Essentially, their need for glasses made them sit close. Sitting close DID NOT cause the need.
