3 Harm to eyes

Most harm is done by the position in which the women used the phone on their beds. It involved them lying on the sides. This meant that one eye was focused on the phone, with its screen brightness on a high and the other eye being partially or fully blocked. This adapts one eye to the light of the phone and the other adapts to the darkness and when the phone is switched off, the brain is confused as to why one eye is adjusted for lightness and one eye is adjusted for darkness. One more issue is those modern LCD screens used in the phones emit a blue light that in the long run damages the retinas of the eye. Its severity grows tenfold when the phone is used in nighttime and doctors have said that prolonged exposure to this blue light can even cause cancer in the eyes.
