Better flying experience

New entertainment systems keep popping up (read here) for passengers. Away with the cumbersome wired earphones and the LCD screen on the back of another seat. Most important, you do not have to adjust the position of your LCD screen because the blok in front of you just decided to push his seat all the way back. Nice!

However, this sets us thinking.

What good will all this be on the eyes if the small screen is just a few inches away? Will it affect our vision? In our pursuit of the sexy and new, are we unwittingly developing another gnawing problem that will plague us in the future?

Research and publications on the impact of viewing devices on eye vision are varied and offer no real answers. It probably confuses you more with all the contradicting views that you will find on the web. The fact is that there are no real standards set by any formal body as you come to expect from say – for example  web address protocols or Pharmaceuticals.

Mel has myopia and wears glasses. One of things he does is to focus on far away objects at the end of a long workday looking at computer screens. It is said to help relax the eyes and hopefully prevent further deterioration of Myopia as age settles in.

So accountability remains in your own hands. Can’t always blame others, though you can try.

We think your eyes are the most important sensory organs that you cannot afford to impair or lose. Take care of them.

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. Me thinks too late for me. 😐 Apart from different grades, my one eye is short sighted and the other is long sighted.. or something like that. And I’m practically blind without the contact lenses. Darned computers! 😆
