A 25-year-old Taiwan woman suffers from 500 holes in her eyes after using her phone on maximum brightness for 2 years.
The secretary identified by her surname Chen, claims that doctors found permanent damage to her eyeballs according to the Sun.
After experiencing some discomfort in her eyes including blurred vision and bloodshot eyes, Chen sought medical attention after four months of trying to use eyedrops and artificial tears.
Doctors allegedly found permanent damage and 500 holes in one of her corneas, as said by the Mirror.
Chen was given steroid treatment as a result and reportedly showed improvement after three days.
With her phone on maximum brightness, the device had been emitting light at 625 Lumens, which is over double the recommended level of 300 Lumens.
Hong Qiting, the doctor treating Chen described the phone usage as having the same effect as her eyes “being baked in a microwave.”
