1 . Our eyes are under a great deal of strain these days as computer work, television viewing, night driving, and even sunshine are making exceptional demands . Sunlight, especially in the summer, is now regarded as one cause of cataracts(白内障)》
2 . The thinning of the ozone (臭氧) layer means more short-wave ultraviolet (UV) rays (紫外线) are reaching the earth, and these are the biggest risk factor for clouding the lens of the eye.

6 . Problems with night vision, which affect around 25 percent of people, are also on the increase because of computer use . Using computer screens means the eye must operate in electromagnetic fields (电磁场) that make it work harder. It is estimated that 25 to 30 percent of people have eye conditions, such as difficulty with night vision, which result from staring at a screen .
