|Assunto:||to squint = to look ???|
Guys, maybe somebody can help me with the meaning of the verb 'to squint' in this following article:
"The more you squint at a computer screen, the more you may be putting your eyes at risk.
A new study shows the more people squint at a computer screen, the less they blink, and the more they reported symptoms like eye strain, dryness, irritation, and tearing.
Researchers found squinting at a computer screen halves the normal number of times a person blinks per minute, which could lead to an irritating but treatable condition called dry eye."
I was aware of the verb 'to squint' as 'to be cross-eyed; to have a squint or strabismus'.
Does it also mean 'to look' in a regular way (no strabismus)??
