Such activity continuously can cause blindness. There should be enough light to allow you see well and read or do whatever you are doing. Do not strain the eye.

Another example is those who work at the studios or actors. These people work in an environment when there is too much light. Those actors are exposed to high voltage light when there are on set. Constant exposure of the light can affect the eye. There must be safety precautions.
