Can looking at an ipod hurt your vision. I have a degenerative eye disease and i'm afraid the ipod could decrease or lower my vision?

We can usually debunk the old incorrect wive's tale/myth that reading in dim light or reading to close or using computers may hurt your eyes.The best thing that we can help inform our readers with is that asking questions is a great thing to do...

In brief: No

Viewing such electronic devices should have no effect on vision, unless you are prone to eye dryness, in which case you could supplement by applying some artificial tears to help the corneas stay moist and healthy.
