Face pressed against / very close to television

Watching television with your face pressed against the screen, or very close to it, could be a sign that the child is trying to reduce visual clutter due to simultanagnostic vision and, if choosing to sit looking up at the screen as well may have a lower visual field impairment.

A number of parents have reported that their children, who have later been shown to have lower visual field impairment, choose to watch the TV upside down, for example by lying with their heads hanging backwards over the arm of the sofa.
