Some comments in another thread got me thinking. In the last few years, my eyes have begun to deteriorate. I've wondered if this has been exacerbated by all the time I spend reading on my computer. Also a few years ago, when I worked in an office, my cubicle was set up so my computer monitor was right on top of my face, this gave me terrible headaches, then in turn I've moved my monitor at home as far back as I could. As I'm typing now my monitor is 4 feet away (just measured it) from my face with the resolution set at 800x600 and this is my standard setup and has been for the last few years. I wonder now if this may be too far for reading and could be less than beneficial or even damaging.
