Computer Vision Syndrome is caused by strain from constant eye movements, often due to long hours in front of a monitor or television screen. By way of lengthy gaming sessions, gamers in particular are susceptible to developing problems, but non-gamers should also be wary of how long they watch.

I read this a while back as my daughter had this from being on the computer playing games too much. I heard yesterday a young boy collasped after playing for 6 hours none stop. I think we should just be careful and give ourselves good breaks of the computer. I think adjusting the screen and things helps. It is the constant glare that causes it all.

well games arnt gonna make us healthy but there not really going to make you unhealthy if you balance it out. I enjoy playing games pretty much everyday but i also go to the gym and i eat fruit and drink water, if you just sat down and eat junk food then i can see why it would be extremely unhealthy to game.

Video games are good in coordinating moves,learning to think and act fast. Although it has to be done in a certain time of the day, not all day long. Like you can set let's say 2-3 hours of play time a day. More, it gets addictive and you want your child healthy.So, a sport on the side, I think will help.
