In the modern world eventually increasingly recorded diseases such as periodic loss of vision. About the threats associated with the use of smartphones, writes the news Agency RIA Novosti.
What is the periodic loss of vision? For the first time met British doctors in 2016 who diagnosed such a problem just two unrelated to each other women. Patients daily for some time (e.g., fifteen minutes) lost the ability to see in one eye.
Complex analyses and studies revealed no disease, but women continued to experience difficulties. In the end it turned out that the two women loved to read from a smartphone screen, lying in bed in the dark. To read lying on your side with one eye, while the second was covered with a pillow. Asymmetrical light adaptation, which was thus subjected to the organs of sight of the patients, led to periodic loss of vision.
