Academics develop myopia.
And texters—call it an avocation—have blurred vision. There are at least two recorded cases of something called smartphone blindness.

Fortunately, smartphone blindness of this kind is transient. The blanket term for screen-borne eyesight problems is computer vision syndrome, an unsatisfactory name given to the blurring, dry eyes, and headaches suffered by the people of the screen. The name is unsatisfactory because, like many syndromes, it describes a set of phenomena without situating them in a coherent narrative—medical or otherwise.
For contrast, arc eye is a burn: Welders get it from their exposure to bright ultraviolet light. Snowblindness is caused when corneas are sunburned by light reflecting off snow. Computer vision syndrome is not nearly as romantic.
Looking Through Your Eyes
When screens pervade the field of vision all day, what counts as prolonged? Moreover, reports of discomfort seem like not much to predicate a whole syndrome on. This is the so-called rule, which asks that screen people take a second break to look at something 20 feet away every 20 minutes. The remedy helps us reverse-engineer the syndrome.

This suffering is thought to be a function not of blue light or intrusive ads or bullying and other scourges. The person suffering eyestrain is taught to look 20 feet away but she might presumably look at a painting or a wall. People who are glued to screens to the exclusion of other people are regarded with disdain: narcissistic, withholding, deceitful, sneaky. This was true even with the panels that prefigured electronic screens, including shoji, as well as mirrors and newspaper broadsheets. The mirror-gazer may have been the first selfie fanatic, and in the heyday of mirrors the truly vain had handheld mirrors they toted around the way we carry phones.
And hand fans and shoji—forget it. The concealing and revealing of faces allowed by fans and translucent partitions suggest the masquerade and deceptions of social media.
An infatuation with screens can easily slide into a moral failing. Not long ago a science writer named Gabriel Popkin began leading walks to identify trees for city dwellers in Washington, DC, many who do work that takes place on screens. In , Popkin had learned about trees to cure this blindness in himself and went from a naif who could barely pick out an oak tree to an amateur arboriculturist who can distinguish dozens of trees.
The biggest living beings in his city suddenly seemed like friends to him, with features he could recognize and relish. Once he could see trees, they became objects of intense interest to him—more exhilarating than apps, if you can believe it. If computer vision syndrome has been invented as a catch-all to express a whole range of fears, those fears may not be confined to what blue light or too much close-range texting are doing to the eyesight.

Follow the journey of this young mother and daughter duo as the mother learns little things through the eyes of the daughter. Activity: In my classroom I would have the students write a journal about looking through the eyes of someone or something else. They could pick who they wanted to be and write 6 journal entries about what it is like living in their shoes and what they learn by being that person.
