    Someone outshines me with what I wanted to say. Plus this gadgets also affect our side, avoid using too much light on them and don't be on them for too long.

    @MikkiTarz i can only imagine. Its not always true that some sorts of disability has to be passed to generations , just as we also see people with disabilities having children with no disabilities... Only in rare cases.

    i'm interested to find out if eye issues can be inherited , because you find people owning it.... you will hear them say ," hii nayo ni yetu, my dad has,my sister and so i'm not shocked"

    what are your thoughts

    To a point yes. I've got my aunt who has eye issues and for a long time she's been into specs and currently her vision is getting lower and lower its like partial blindness. And her kids, almost all wear specs and it's trickled down to her grandkids for they too wear specs.
