Doctors say a woman’s partial blindness was brought on by excessive tiredness after she sought medical help because she had played smartphone games for an entire day and could no longer see out of one eye.

Wu Xiaojing, 21, says she can no longer see from her right eye after a day of gaming on her device from her home in Chang’an city in north-western China’s Shaanxi Province.

The trainee accountant says she stopped gaming for dinner, only to have her eyesight dim then go in her right eye.

She rushed to hospital where doctors diagnosed her with a condition named retinal artery occlusion, a disease that is usually caused by tiredness of the eye.

Wu said playing games on her phone is her “only hobby”, with the mobile device taking all of her spare hours after work and at weekends.

The obsessed gamer says at the weekend, she hardly goes anywhere and will instead stay home to play games.
