Woman contracted RAO by excessive gaming on phone


A Chinese female who spent the entire day clinching her cell phone, playing a game has gone somewhat visually impaired. She was exceptionally attached to playing a popular cell phone multiplayer game ‘King of Glory’.

It comes to the notice that the woman named Wu Xiaojing, age 21, was playing the game for a few hours. This caused the loss of sight of her right eye. Later on, the young lady was taken to a doctor’s facility and therefore was determined to have an infection called Retinal Artery Occlusion (RAO) in her right eye.

What is RAO?

RAO happens when there is a blockage in one of the arteries that take blood to the retina. RAO is a typical sickness in older folks and it can bring about everlasting loss of vision.

Wu Xiaojing conceded that she is a hardcore enthusiast of the game, King of Glory, and played the game for ceaselessly eight hours without eating, drinking or any routine work that day. Wu works in finance and when she doesn’t need to go to the workplace, she begins playing the game after breakfast till 4 pm.

As per the local specialist of Nanchang, the reason for RAO was unreasonable cell phone utilization. Notwithstanding, specialists in UK assert that playing inordinate games over a cellular devices is no great proof to demonstrate this case.

Dr. David Allam told Mashable that “You don’t get RAO from video-related severe eye strain as is suggested here — it’s most commonly evidence of some form of cardiovascular disease. The only potential link — and it’s slim — is that sometimes migraines can be a rare cause of RAO.”

This announcement by one means or another eases gamers that playing cell phones games isn’t an exhaustion unless they are giving you delayed and determined headache.
