Continuous Gaming in Mobile Phone Damages Vision in 21-year-old Girl
The girl continuously played an online game, 'Honour of Kings' which has cost her the sight of one eye.

When she was on the phone, playing the game, she suddenly lost vision in the right eye.

At the hospital, she was diagnosed with Retinal Artery Occlusion (RAO), a condition which is usually found in elderly people. It is rarely seen in young population.

In this case it was caused by eye strain from looking at the screen for too long without a break, the doctors said. 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.

"Honour of Kings", a historical battle game, has 200 million registered players in China alone and has been denounced for being too addictive.
