Is Reading in the Dark Bad for Your Eyes?

You've most likely heard that it's bad to read in the dark, that it strains your eye and may cause serious eye damage.  Is this really true?  Turns out, it is not.  Reading in the dark may cause you to strain your eyes and may cause headaches in some people, but there is no evidence that it causes and long term eye damage.

If your kids insist on reading in dim light, go ahead and let them.  There are probably bigger, more important battles to pick with them.  :-)
