Sitting Too Close to The TV won’t Damage Your Eyes

Back in the 1950’s TVs emitted unsafe levels of radiation, but that’s not a thing anymore. So sitting too close would be bad for your overall health back then. But it did nothing to your eyes. While extended close viewings could cause strain and a headache, there’s no lasting damage. In fact, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, kids can focus up close without eye strain better than adults.
