Opticians say using your smartphone too much can damage your eyes

37 sec read

I suppose it makes perfect sense – if you were to push parts of your body to the extreme or over the edge, there is bound to be pain, discomfort or injury which will happen. Your eyes are sensitive organs, and opticians have already shared their concern that one’s eyes could be over-exposed to light from modern day devices such as smartphones and tablets, which in turn could develop into long term eye problems.

Opticians say people are so addicted to smartphones they may be increasing their risk of eye damage. They are warning overuse from phones and other devices like computers, tablets, and flat screen TVs can lead to long-term damage. It comes as a survey of 2,000 people suggests under 25s check their phones thirty-two times a day. Optician Andy Hepworth said: “Blue violet light is potentially hazardous and toxic to the back of your eyes. “So over a long period of time it can potentially damage your eyes. “When you’re looking at a smart phone, the light peaking out of that is blue violet.”
