    typical eyestrain, and common sense will prevent it.

    don't watch a tv in a dark room, keep a background light on behind the TV

    it is similar to looking at the sun, spots burn in the retina of the eye.
    just to a different degree.

    with the sun, blindness can be permanent, with the TV depending on degree of use, it should just be temporary over a few minutes or hours.

    I am dark-adapted, and the absolute worst thing is when I am in bed trying to get to sleep and Dngrswife wants me to see some post on her Facebook page.

    Her phone is always set to max brightness and it's like a pair of knives stabbing straight into my brain.

    Coincidentally Mrs. Luna was reading her Nook in bed last night and had the consideration to reverse the color scheme when I turned out the lights.

    just wait to see next phone launches and the sentence in manuals - "people, who can see with two eyes, shouldnt ever watch the screen only by one eye. it can cause temporary vision problems."

    So this means there will be mandatory warnings for screen brightness now, besides the headphone audio volume warnings we already have, because of dimwit lawsuits and things.

    Well doctor I kept my Maglite shining straight into my eyes in a dark room....

    There's a new app for eye protection ... every 30 seconds it flashes "Hey, you moron, LOOK UP!" over whatever you are looking at. ;) :D

    More than likely we'll end up paying more for another "feature" we don't need. The automatic one eye dimming sensor.. or something there of. :(
