Epilepsy Warning

Certain people are susceptible to epileptic fits or a loss of consciousness on seeing certain types of flashing lights or other frequently-occurring phenomena.

These people are equally at risk when watching certain television images or when playing certain video games. This phenomenon can occur even if the subject has no medical antecedents and has never been victim to an epileptic fit. If you or a member of your family has previously shown symptoms often associated with epilepsy (fits or loss of conscience) in the presence of an oscillating light source please ask your doctor for advice before using Internet.

UpToTen strongly advises parents and guardians to be especially attentive when their children play on-line or off-line video games. If you or your child shows any of the following symptoms: dizziness, problems with vision, contractions of eye or other muscles, loss of consciousness, sensorial confusion, involuntary movements or convulsions, stop playing immediately and consult your doctor.

General precautions: Do not sit too close to the screen. Avoid playing if you are tired or suffering from a lack of sleep. Ensure that you are in a well-lit room. Whilst playing take a break of ten to fifteen minutes every hour.
