Already born myopic, teen’s eyes get severely deformed after mobile gaming addiction

When your parents tell you that video games will spoil your eyes, you should probably know that science can back up their claims. 

A teen in China had his eyeballs severely deformed thanks to a potent combination of congenital myopia and a serious addiction to mobile games. 

Oriental Daily reported that the 15-year-old boy from Guangdong Province was already born with congenital myopia, an affliction that develops in infants and causes nearsightedness.

Due to the obstruction along the visual pathway, the eye becomes elongated in response, resulting in distance blur. 

Though its effects could have been slowed down early on, the boy’s family mentioned that he was not willing to wear glasses as he was afraid of being teased by his classmates.
