Q.

TV exposure

Dear Doc

My 15 week old son loves staring at the TV! Is this bad for his eyes? Should I keep him away from the TV?

Thank you.

It is definitely to soon for your baby to be staring at a TV screen. He is obviously fascinated by the colour and movement he sees, but the flickering of the screen [which you do not actually notice] is not good for him now.
