Do You know how Smart Phones are Gradually Killing your Eyes?

Pix credit: wn.com

Recent study on user experiences world wide has revealed that using a smartphone at night, in the dark, especially during bedtime, can actually cause the feeling of momentary blindness.

The smartphone has been described as the silent eyekiller. Check out the information below; were you aware of any of these facts?

Have you considered that turning on the brightness level of your device beyond 30% could be impacting your eyes in ways that could render them useless in a not too distant future?
Are you part of those who just love handling their various range of smartphones and have a knack for ensuring the phone is really bright “so that it won’t be too dull on the eyes?”

Have you noticed that you can reflexively close your left eye and open the right one. But it’s very hard to close the right eye and open the left one….or vice versa?

Have you noticed that you view your smartphone for a while and then when you lift your head, you find that your eyes are somewhat blurry?

Chances are that the muscle of that eye is weak.
Have you also noticed that sometimes it feels like there is a stone or something in your eyes. This could be after effects of overly exposing your eyes to bright light on your smartphone, laptops and all.

It is important to ensure that you keep the brightness on your smartphone at a reasonable level.
If possible, turn it off completely whenever you can.

This information is very vital because your eyes should not be played with at all. Help yourself and be careful with your smartphone.
