New Study: The Light From the Cell Phone can Cause Permanent Blindness


We have become so dependent on technology, that we can`t even imagine spending a day without texting or using the Internet. We use all sorts of applications like Viber, Skype, WhatsApp every day, to contact people or call our relatives who live abroad.

The real questions here are: How much time do we spend on our phone? Do we use it correctly? Can there be some complications of overusing the phone?

It`s very likely that the first thing you look at in the morning and the last before going to sleep is your phone. This can harm your eyesight.

Just count down how many times a day you look at your phone, to call someone, read a text, or some news, check someone`s latest photos… This number should seriously be reduced!

Medical experts performed a research which included women between the age of 22 and 45. The conclusion was the following: the light from the cell phone can cause permanent blindness. This was based on the habit of these women to check their phone before sleeping.

Specialists advise all of us to stop looking at the phone before sleeping, because it can have serious consequences of our vision.

Human eyes get accustomed to darkness. When we switch off the lights to go sleeping, and turn on the phone, the strong light from the phone has negative effects on the eyes. During this time, one of the eyes is processing the absence of light, while the other one is processing the excess light, so the brain gets confused.

This habit can eventually cause temporary blindness, which can develop into permanent blindness in time.
