Man Suffers Severe Eye Condition Because Of Something Everyone Does At Night

Using your smartphone in dim light may cause eye canc3r, a new report says. An unnamed man knew this too late.

Just recently, there is a report circulating of an unnamed 40-year-old man diagnosed with eye-canc3r in Hong Kong because of his smartphone usage patterns. He initially went to the hospital because of suspected pink eye but found out that h has eye cancer, instead.

Allegedly, he always uses his phone in the dim light for 30 minutes before sleeping. And because of this, his macular eye degraded, impairing his vision, and is now diagnosed with canc3r. Unfortunately, his doctors cannot do anything for him because replacing the retina is still a difficult thing to do.

The debate on whether mobile phones is really linked to eye cancer is still ongoing. The Verge cited a German study and reported that using mobile phones can lead to a rare form of eye cancer. Based on the findings of the study, regular use of cell phones can lead to uveal melanoma. This cancer only affects a few in every 100,000 people. The study was published in the journal Epidemiology.

However, other reports claimed that there is no conclusive link between cellphone use and eye cancer. Interestingly, there are newer reports citing the role of smartphones in detecting cancer. The Verge reported that with the help of the smartphone camera flash, a retinoblastoma can already be detected among young .

This is a great help since this is a rare type of aggressive eye cancer. who are snapped with the a smartphone and have a white glow around their pupils in the might mean there is a tumor growing inside the eye. The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) already run a campaign last year to raise awareness of the smartphone’s capacity.

We must utilize our body with care in how and what we do - Technology sometimes can make us become situationally unaware of such.
