It has become the common habit of a lot of people to use phones at night. For some people it is just fun but others it is usually because it is quite important.
Whether it is important or not, it is a bad habit that could lead to damage of your eye. Despite the fact that it is a bad habit, there are still precaution for people who can't just avoid using phones at night.
In this article, I am going to be talking about 3 things that needs to be in place when you want to use your phone late at night.
1. Make sure your lights are on
One thing that you should make sure that it is in place is this. Your lights needs to be on. Using a phone or laptop in a dark room has more effect on the eye than when the lights are on. It could seriously damage your eye if it becomes a common habit.
According to research, when you use your phone in a dark room and you step out of the room after some hours, there will be a slight feeling of blindness. Make sure your room is a lit one.
2. Make sure your protective glasses are in place
Protective glasses are mostly recommended by doctors, they are necessary for midnight use of phones. This is because they protect the eye against dangerous rays from phones and laptops
This could also be used if you decide to watch the television set late at night as television sets also have the same effect of other digital devices to the eye.
3. Turn down your backlight
Another important thing you should put in place is turning down your backlight. It is commonly known as brightness of the phone you are using. Make sure that it is not too bright as that brightness is actually the thing that affects the eye.
