  • The Risks Of Myopic Medical Device Management

    The National Eye Institute (part of the NIH, or NIH) has ample evidence that spending too much time in front of a computer screen can lead to myopia, a condition impairs one’s ability to see the full picture clearly and ultimately will lead to eye strain and headaches.
