According to the report released by United Kingdom-based eye care company Scrivens Opticians, the percentage of 13-16 year olds in the U.K. who need glasses has nearly doubled over the past seven years — from 20% in 2012 to 35% in 2018. Two-thirds of those teens were diagnosed as being myopic, or short-sighted.

Researchers theorize that this significant increase in eye problems among young people is likely linked to excessive time spent staring at screens, which can lead to eye strain, shortsightedness, and blurred vision. In fact, the study also found that the ...

Problem here is that everything is moving to the World of Screens. Do you get bank statement in the mail? Nowadays, they will charge you a buck or two extra for that, so they want you to put it online. Same with your other utility bills.
And then, what about this website? How can you read anything here without a screen?
Libraries don't have as many books as they used to--they point you to their computer terminals and say 'look it up online' and there is a wonderful variety of books online that your local library would not have, unless you live near the main branch in a large city. CCEL.org is a good site for many Christian books, including audio ones (latest one is on prayer by E.M. Bounds)
