My uncle has been in the computer for many hours when he was young
about 20 until now, in young ages he stood in the PC for many hours a
day, and now he's still now but, not that much that before.

20 years of computer use and still as near sighted as ever (20/450), but not as near-sighted as other people that don't even use computers. Guess I'm lucky if there is any truth to the study.

I can feel my eyes getting worse over the last couple of years, but I lay the blame squarely on television - and using televisions as monitors for up to 36 hours at a time in my younger days - rather than simply laying the blame on heavy computer use... I believe my own eyesight problems have little to do with radiation burns from staring into a high power monitor for hours, I'd be willing to bet its from sitting in the dark, staring at a fuzzy and usually dirty television screen and straining the heck out of my poor old sockets...
