The Danger Of The Camera Flash Hitting The Baby’s Eyes?
, I want to ask. Yesterday I took a photo of a 7 day old baby and accidentally the flash on my cellphone camera turned on. Is it harmful to the baby’s eyes? R nThank you.
Hello noveliaunyil, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The eye is indeed an important organ for every human being, especially very vulnerable to babies in their first year of development. So far, no research has proven that camera flash is harmful to the eyes of babies / children. It's just a myth that says that camera flash has a negative impact on the vision of the baby / adult who sees it.
When the camera flash is turned on, it will have a bright effect on vision, especially if the camera flash is turned on in a dark or low light room. The camera flash will not harm the baby's vision, but only gives an uncomfortable effect, because after a glimpse of a sudden glare of light, it will interfere with vision such as a glint that lasts a few seconds. If you still want to get in-depth information about the dangers of camera flash to baby's eyes, you can consult directly with an ophthalmologist about this.
Hopefully our explanation is useful, thank you.
