[Anchor Lead]With the increasing use of smartphones, more and more senior citizens are reporting sore eyes. Experts advise that users adjust their screen settings to reduce the blue lights on the phone and also increase the font size.[Pkg]Elderly ladies have gathered together with smartphones in their hands. They're all past 60 years of age, but are very adept at using their mobile phones.[Soundbite] Nah Yong-soon(66-year-old) : "I naturally grab my phone when I rest. I hold onto it all day before sleeping."[Soundbite] Kim Sun-deuk(61-year-old) : "Half an hour or an hour goes by quickly when I pick up my smartphone. My eyes grow sore and dry."The problem is the occurrence of ocular afflictions resulting from excessive phone use. Over half of the 1.25 million patients with retinal diseases in Korea are over 60. Their number surged 59 percent in 5 years. In severe cases, retina problems can even lead to blindness. Extended exposure to blue rays from a smartphone screen can easily damage aging retinal cells.[Soundbite] Prof. An Jae-mun(Korea Univ. Anam Hospital) : "Using a smartphone at night in a dark environment can increase excess exposure to blue light. Therefore, its advisable to turn on the lights when using one's phone at night."Bluish hues can be reduced by adjusting the screen's color settings. Increasing the font size is another way to alleviate fatigue of the eyes.
