Keeping a Tab
It is alarming when we see the number of children playing on tabs or ipads and mobiles. The games are addictive and the children keep playing on them for long intervals without any breaks in between.
Now how is this harming the eyes?
Continuous near work stresses the accommodation of the eyes and this leads to disturbances of eye coordination especially fusion and convergence. This can lead to focusing problems also.
The next problem is dry eyes. This occurs because of infrequent blinking and disturbances in the tear film constitution. There is accumulation of debris in the tear film.
I think it is the need of the hour to keep a tab on the duration of time spent on the tab and mobile phones.
