Too close to TV

You remember the threat: Huwag masyadong lumapit sa TV pag nanonood, baka masira mata mo. Sige ka, magsasalamin ka pag ganyan. (Translation: Don't stay too close to the TV screen when watching, you might damage your eyes and require prescription glasses.)  My parents and other caregivers have issued this warning over the years, and many more parents my age are issuing this same warning now to their kids.  I get kids whose parents blame the TV for their childrens' error of refraction.

Actually, it works the other way around.  You should be on the alert when your children have the habit of veering too close to the TV, or a weird head position when watching TV.  I'll tackle this issue in my medical blog.  Watch out for it.
