A 40-year-old man was diagnosed with eye cancer, while also suffering from pinkeye.
This unnamed 40-year-old man visited the doctor when he could not focus clearly, his albumen having turned red because of serious injuries. Turns out he always uses his mobile phone for 30 minutes in the dark before going to sleep. He did this over a prolonged period of time, which made his macular’s eye degrade, leading to impaired vision and signs of eye cancer.
Up to now, in Hong Kong, China, the age of patients seen with macular degeneration, dry eye and eye cancer has been getting younger. The main cause is excessive usage of the smart phone. The experts recommend that people should minimize their use of laptops, tablets or mobile devices at night, when lighting is low or even turned off. They recommend these access devices should always be used in suitable lighted condition.
