HOW long do you use electronic products every day? A recent survey by Hong Kong's eye specialists found out that as many as one third of young kids are exposed to electronic devices before reaching two years old! Because of this, about 7 percent of Hong Kong's kids have sought treatment for eye problems caused by the overuse of electronic screen products.

Doctors say that this is a serious problem. They advise children to use electronic products much less often. Otherwise, they may develop eye problems like short-sightedness, retinal detachment, glaucoma, and even blindness!
