Myopic Storm during COVID 19 As an Ophthalmologist I am observing recent rise in Myopia (Nearsightedness). In children younger then 8 years, I am observing Myopic rise as fast as 2 diopters per year. More & more patients are coming for headache, strain, aesthenopia, tiredness, neck strain and many other similar complaints Reasons might be 1. on line education 2. students stayed indoors 3. routine checkups were delayed 4. screen time unusually high My suggestions for parents are 1. ask their children to stop leisure activities like games, movies through screens. Instead take them outside in parks and clubs for physical games 2. On line school works should always be done on widescreens desktops instead of touch screens pads and phones 3. remember the 20-20-20 rule. Take breaks every 20 minutes 4. Monitor children activities very closely 5. Ask school teachers to reduce online tasks. instead written workbooks, question and answer sheets should be developed 6. No screen should be used 2 hour prior to bed time 7. Develop healthy life style in your children

Retinal detachment is a disorder of the eye in which the retina separates from the layer underneath.[1] Symptoms include an increase in the number of floaters, flashes of light, and worsening of the outer part of the visual field.[1][2] This may be described as a curtain over part of the field of vision. In about 7% of cases both eyes are affected. Without treatment permanent loss of vision may occur. Retinal detachments affect between 0.6 and 1.8 people per 10,000 per year.[5] About 0.3% of people are affected at some point in their life. It is most common in people who are in their 60s or 70s. Males are more often affected than females.
