screen time

(redirected from screen times)

screen time

The amount of time a person spends in front of a “screen”, including TV, computers and video games. Increased screen time in children is associated with narrowing of retinal arteriolar calibre, which may be a surrogate marker for future risk of cardiovascular disease. Physical activity, in contrast, is associated with a wider mean retinal arteriolar calibre.
