Hello everybody, having been studying a lot lately, i am getting a bit concerned for my eyes. I have got 20/20 vision normally, should i be worried because i read from my laptop for about 10hours a day?

As you know it is easier to have a lot of free step1 prep stuff online, i guess it would be pointless spending money on printing thousands of pages anyways.

do you study from your laptop or from a book? how worried are you for your eyes?

Peace

More than an hour sustained reading from a computer screen would be tough for your eyes. Take frequent breaks. Set an alarm for 60 minutes and take a 5 minute break each time it goes off.
