Two individuals recently have been reported with becoming blind for about fifteen minutes! One was the age 22 and the other 44 how could this be?
- Many MRI’s and heart scans were done but these tests brought back no certain cause and this phenomenon was unexplainable. The doctors were however later on, able to link these momentary blind spells to mobile phone use before bed! It seems both of these women used their cell phones before bed and they both lied on their side. This caused one eye to concentrate on the phone while the other eye was blocked by the pillow.
This causes one eye to adapt to the light and the other to get used to the dark. A recipe for blindness indeed. This can even end up damaging one’s eyes permanently. So, we should be especially careful when using our phones before bed. You see the light our phones give off is more harmful than we would think. These screens are becoming more and more popular so I’m sure there is an awful lot of damage being done.
The blue light emitted from cellular phones is a lot more destructive that many individuals understand.
One eye doctor stated that a few of his 35-year-old patients have eye lenses so cloudy due to nighttime blue light direct exposure that they look like those of a 75-year-old.
And to make matters worse the damage goes far beyond the eyes. Health experts at Harvard confirm the link between blue light and numerous types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
That is a very high price to pay to scroll through Facebook, don’t you agree?
