Everyone does it.. right? I work several jobs and when I finish up my last projects for the day I always end up spending some time watching some Netflix on my tablet,or reading some articles, or catching up on my twitter feed for the day on my phone. Needless to say I have never experienced blindness after enjoying this before bedtime activity. As you can imagine I was pretty alarmed to hear what some users were reporting after using their devices in bed. The women in the article reported temporary 15 minute blindness after constantly checking their phones in the dark. This is a known condition called transient blindness. It happens when you are laying on your side, one eye is covered, and the other eye is used to look at a bright object. The eye that is covered adjust to the darkness while the other eye adjusts to the light. When you immediately try to use both eyes neither eye is able to properly adjust. This causes temporary blindness. It would be pretty rare that anyone would actually experience this since you have to kind of be in an uncomfortable position to make it happen. The moral of the story is use both eyes when using your smart device in bed. Any other night time device addicts here? Have you ever experienced Transient Blindness?
