According to a report, after Corona, a large number of people in China and the Netherlands have received complaints of myopia in their eyes. At the same time, in India also people’s eyes are coming under the grip of this disease myopia i.e. nearsightedness. According to experts, in this era of Kovid, it is most important to protect the eyes of adults as well as children. If attention is not given in time, then there will be a problem of vision on a large scale.
Professor Dr. Atul Kumar in Dr. Rajendra Prasad Center for Ophthalmic Sciences of All India Institute of Medical Sciences says that the complaints of myopia have increased among the people of India as compared to the time before corona. One of the reasons for this is people staying in homes and using digital devices and virtual activity for a very long time after the arrival of Corona.
Professor Atul says that by focusing on one thing continuously and for a long time, the complaint of myopia arises in the eyes. Gradually the vision becomes so narrow that only very close things are clearly visible. It is not limited to vision only, but its side effects are so much that apart from bleeding from the eyes, it can eventually lead to eyesight. So there is a need to be very careful.
If seen after corona, then children’s eyes are suffering a lot. Due to staying at home, studying online for many hours and not being able to go out, only running mobile phone, laptop or tablet etc. in indoor activities is causing problems in the eyes. Myopia in a way affects the ability to see far away. In this, the nearby things are well visible but the distant vision gradually becomes blurred.
