Virtual reality (VR) technology is starting to get to a point where it will become more common in the mainstream. The technology involves placing screens very close to your eyes to create the vision. Id imagine a very close focus point that does not move which would possibly damage your vision over time.

Is this likely or is there some reason to think my assumption is wrong

  • Why do you think this would damage vision?

  • My guess is that focusing on at a short distance would have the eyes muscles / ligaments in an extreme position which over time could reduce the ability to move to other positions easily hence slowing focus or leaving things blurry. Sep 25 '16 at 22:58
