Just moderate your screen time. Then you won't go blind by the age of 50.

4 days with nothing but a monitor and some lube and anyone would go blind.

We are coming up upon a generation of the partially blind and death.

I sit two and a half feet away from my monitor and I always lower the brightness of the monitor (test setting on my samsung monitor) when I am using the internet.
