The Corona virus pandemic created havoc all over the world leading to worldwide lock down. The year 2020 started the trend of work from home for adults and online classes for children. 

Under this online education system, children have to spend most of their time in front of a smart phone or a laptop computer. Doctors say that this can also cause myopia (nearsightedness) in children in the coming days. More and more kids are suffering from eye strain because of increased screen time.

According to doctors, myopia (nearsightedness) can occur due to reasons like keeping the screen close to the eyes, low light in the room, small font, small screen, sitting incorrectly.

Buying expensive gadgets is not possible for everyone, therefore, smart phones which are cheaper than laptops, are used more frequently for online classes. But, smart phones can have more effects on eyesight, and can cause reduced vision and a lot of other complications. 
It is believed that the use of large screens, laptops or computers, is more accurate for online studies. If possible, TV can also be connected for work or for studies. 

When looking at screens, kid’s don’t blink as often while focusing on something at the same distance for a long time. This can cause blurry vision as the muscles around the eye begin to wear out, causing headaches.
