Also, you can read in the dark if having a headache for a bit is okay with you.

Reading in the dark

Reading in the dark

You might get a headache from reading in the dark, but there is currently no scientific proof to support the idea that your eyes will get affected. However, there is no long-term study yet to fully seal the deal, but for now you can read in the dark, but remember to read during daylight because that is really beneficial.

Sitting too close to TV

Sitting too close to TV

Actually, you can get as close as you want. Yes, you might get a headache or get blurry eyes, but that's temporary. Only the oldest televisions emitted x-rays that were dangerous to the eyes. Be careful about the computer screens, though, they might just affect your vision far longer.

Carrots can improve

Yes, decent sight depends on vitamin A, but the body only needs a little amount of it. Besides, you can get the same vitamins from milk or cheese. Stop the carrot monopoly!

Wearing contacts or glasses

Actually, your eyesight might get worse only because you're getting older, i.e. you're aging..

If you cross your eyes too much

Actually, it doesn't matter if you do this because the activity utilizes the same muscles needed by our eyes to look at everything.

It's possible

It's possible

You can't really outgrow lazy eyes. After just four months, parents should deal with the condition because it could really get bad for the child.

Surgery cures

Surgery cures

You can never restore the damaged optic nerve. You can still protect your remaining vision though.

Contact lens can get caught

Contact lens can get caught

This is basically impossible because your eye has a lining in your eyelids that connects the eye to the eyelids, so a contact can't really get behind your eyes. It can only get stuck to your eyelid, chill.
