Whenever I am discussing pediatric vision problems with parents, almost inevitably the topic of computers will come up. Because, let's face it, computers are a life-factor for both adults and children these days. And while computers can do wonderful things, it is true that we must be aware of how computer use can affect us all.
The American Optometric Association has published an article on computer use and children's vision. It discuses some of the ways that children are different than adults when it comes to computer use and some ways to limit problems from computer use.
