A strange effect of the Coronavirus pandemic has been seen in Britain. A new research says that the vision of a third of adults in the UK has been affected due to pandemic. The College of Optometrists conducted a poll among two thousand people. In this, he was asked how his vision was after the first lockdown in June 2020 and how was it after the lockdown ended again in April 2021. This poll found that there was a significant increase in people concerned about the ability to see.
31 percent of the people polled saw a negative change in their vision after the lockdown in 2021. Nearly half (44 percent) of those surveyed admitted that their eyesight worsened due to increased screen time. But some of these people also took help in case of poor vision. At the same time, those who saw a change in their vision, they did not take any help, because they did not find this serious problem. On the other hand, there were people who felt that if they went to the doctor, they would be at higher risk of getting infected with Kovid.
See a doctor immediately if there is any problem in the eyes
Daniel Herdiman, clinical advisor at the College of Optometrists, said, “This is very important if you feel that your vision has deteriorated or you are facing any problem with your eyes. As if they are turning red or they are in pain. In this case, you should contact your local eye doctor. He said, we know that many people are worried about going to the doctor. But please be assured that it is safe to go to the doctors. Your doctor will ensure that all appropriate safety measures are in place.
Eyes get tired from spending more time on screen
Daniel Hardiman said, “This research also showed us that many people believe that spending more time in front of the screen worsens their vision. You may spend more time on screen because of working from home, video calls and watching more television. This can be tiring for your eyes now. The good news is that it is not likely to cause any long-term damage to your vision. At the same time, in January, the health charity For Sight found that 38 percent of the 2000 people surveyed believed that their vision had deteriorated.
