"ya a recent study that i will have to cite when i get home, suggest prolonged exposure to comp screens and kindle type screens is causing injury to the eyes, their study not mine, so you will have to take their findings and self evaluate."
I stare at a computer screen between 8-12 hours everyday. Am I screwed?
Why are you worried about your eyes? The low level radiation from the Kindle screen is going to give you cancer. But then again, if you read the paper version, the low level exposure to the chemicals used in the printing process would also give you cancer.
