Hello doctor. Every time my sister sees me playing with my cellphone while lying down, she will reprimand me. If you want to play, sit down. If you want to lie down, don’t play with your cellphone, it will add to your eye minus.”

Hello, good morning Patrick.


In general, reading (in this case including playing gadgets) in a sleeping position and for a long time is a bad habit that will have an impact on eye health. When someone looks at the gadget for too long, he or she rarely blinks, even though the blinking movement serves to clean the lining of the eyeball and lubricate the eyeball. Prolonged exposure to gadgets will also cause eye muscle fatigue so that it has an impact on eye health. Rest your eyes every 20 minutes for 20 seconds by looking at a distance of about 6 meters.


In addition, when a person uses his eyes to read or play gadgets in a sleeping position, he tends to read/gaze at the screen of the gadget in close proximity, this is one of the risk factors for experiencing minus eyes (and the addition of minus eyes). The safe distance from the eye to the screen is about 30-40 cm. Also adjust the lighting of your gadget so as not to increase the burden on the eye muscles due to inappropriate lighting (too dark or too bright).
