Can you damage your eyes painting minis (battlelore size)?
If so what are some protective measures? (IE desk lamp or magnifying glass or whatnot)
for those who know what an "Ott-Light" is, would that be a good light?
My eye doc said that until you're thirty, close-up work (reading, computers, minis) increases short-sightedness. After thirty, the eyes are less elastic and you won't accelerate your sight loss with close-up work.
You can still tucker yourself out and strain your eyes, though, so use good lighting, take lots of breaks, and remember to spend a few minutes looking out at a point very far from you every 15 minutes if you can.
