Woman lost eyesight

We are all well aware of the negative impacts of technology and the consequences of a device addiction. However, a lot of people disregard or disregard warnings and allow their addiction to negatively impact their health. A Hyderabadi woman had a similar dependence on using her smartphone late at night. Additionally, she lost her vision due to her habit of reading through social media at night.

Dr. Sudhir, a neurosurgeon from Hyderabad, detailed on Twitter how a 30-year-old woman’s vision was destroyed as a result of her habit of using her smartphone in the dark at night.

The physician revealed in a Twitter thread that Manju, one of his patients, visited him with symptoms included seeing floaters, bright flashes of light, black zigzag patterns, and occasionally having trouble focusing on objects. She was found to have smartphone vision syndrome (SVS), which can cause eye-related issues including blindness, when she underwent a medical test.

Her tendency to spend a lot of time on her phone in the dark, according to the doctor, is what caused her vision loss. She had been following the same schedule for almost 1.5 years. I went over the past.

Her symptoms began when she left her profession as a beautician to care for her child with special needs. She developed a new habit of using her smartphone for several hours every day, including more than two hours at night when the lights are out, according to Dr. Sudhir’s Twitter thread.
