The woman admits that playing continuously must be the only reason for the vision loss.
She said, "On days when I have no work, I usually get up at 6 a.m., eat breakfast and play until 4 p.m. Then I'll eat something, have a nap and play until 1 a.m."
"Sometimes I would be so absorbed in the game that I would forget to eat and not listen to my parents when they told me it's time for dinner."
She is still in the hospital as the doctors are trying to save her eyesight, the report said.
