Smartphones have become the revolutionary tools of the 21st century. These have virtually perpetrated all aspects of our lives universally. Nevertheless, the effects of significant digital eyestrain are increasingly becoming evident affecting enormously affecting our younger generation.
Symptoms like the rubbing of eyes, watering, redness, fatigue are fast becoming a household problem.
The radiation from mobile, computer, laptops, smartphones are fast consuming our essential tear film which maintains a healthy ocular surface. This results in a dry eye which signals the brain to secrete more tears, hence watering. The tears thus secreted are more in solute and less in water content which thus causes inflammation, hence the redness.
So, technology has not only revolutionised the way we live but also comes with serious implications for our health as well.
