Have noticed something that seems strange to me, not being an opthamologist.
When I stand for a prolonged time in "complete" darkness my eyes seem to become more nearsighted. When I tray-develope a sheet I have an opaque divider between the tray and a timer with "glow in the dark" numbers. This is connected to a radio that will go silent when time is up.
When I put out the light I can see the numbers very sharply but after about 4 minutes I notice that I have to lean closer to see the numbers. Just like being shortsighted.
I would think that as the eyes adjust I would be able to see better in the dark, not worse.
Anyone else noticed this?
