So, why is so much importance being given to this Idiot box?

Myopia is the abnormal ocular condition that is being noted to be caused due to the watching of the television. In this case the person is able to see the objects very clearly but the person is not able to see the image at distance. You will see these images blurred. This happens when the light rays reflecting gets focused in front of the retina, resulting in blurred images. So, you need the spectacles to focus the light rays on the retina. This is how you get prone to the myopia by watching the television for the long time.

Whenever there is a problem there is a solution. Even the blindness resulting from television watching can be prevented. For this I would suggest you to cut down the timing that you spend in watching the television. Other thing that you can opt for is keeping the adequate distance between you and television. The best distance to keep from the television screen is about 50 cm. But, it would be better if you could keep more distance than it. I do understand that television has now become like a basic necessity and we all are attached to it. But, guys to keep our eyes in a good condition we need to control our habit of watching television for long time. I would also suggest increasing the intake of the foods that are rich in Vitamin A as it will help you maintain your eyes at better condition.
