Almost everyone has a smartphone these days and it is almost always glued to our hands or by our side 24/7. Come on, you know it’s true! Even when we are lying on our beds and have already turned off the lights to sleep, sometimes we just can’t help but to scroll through our social media feeds before finally drifting off into slumberland.
Well, if you do that often, then you may want to be careful! According to Sinchew, a 26-year-old man from Wuhan, China suffered dire consequences from using his phone in the dark. It had caused his eyes to grow conjunctival concretions, which were “stone-like, hard calcified matter”.
Apparently, the man got addicted to playing a mobile game and would often play it even when lying on his bed in the dark. Soon, he found that his vision got a bit blurry and when he was driving at night, he could not see the road clearly.
One day he woke up and found that his eyes could not open like usual. Panicked, he rushed to the hospital for medical treatment and that was when the doctor found that his upper eyelids were covered with dense, small yellowish-white “stones”.
After examination, the doctor diagnosed that his eyes were covered with conjunctival concretions. Luckily, these concretions are treatable and the doctor proceeded to remove the “stones” from his eyelids. He took more than 40 minutes to successfully remove those concretions!
The doctor said that people with dry eyes were more susceptible to this condition but warned frequent mobile phone users to practice healthy eye habits. He said they should not use their phones in the dark, should maintain a safe distance from the screen and not to rub the eyes.
Remember people, avoid playing your phones in the dark okay!
