About BenQ

With the great shift in the number of people working and studying from home — 'the new normal'— BenQ released the Eye-care monitors, GW2480T, GW2780T, to address the health concerns and harmful effects associated with increased exposure to blue light and flickering.

These harmful effects include the degradation of vision, as well as unhealthy bone development (bad posture) due to prolonged screen time and device usage in both children and adults.

The GW2480T and GW2780T monitors address these problems through carefully developed innovations and solutions. This includes:

  • Exclusive Brightness Intelligent (B.I.) technology
  • Low Blue Light technology
  • Flicker-free technology
  • Ergonomic and height adjustment modules.

These innovations and solutions help to lower the risk of eye disease.

What symptoms differentiate degenerative myopia from normal childhood myopia?

Degenerative myopia is a severe form of nearsightedness that damages the retina. The retina is what lets you ‘capture’ images in order to send them to your brain. This is important as an eye doctor can check for retinal damage during an eye exam. Your doctor will widen (dilate) your eyes in order to see your retinas. Both types of myopia result in your eyeball being stretched, but degenerative myopia means there is damage to the tissues in the eye. Tissue damage does increase the possibility of sight loss. Degenerative myopia can lead to macula issues.

Will reading while lying down worsen myopia?

Actually, reading while lying down by itself has no effect on eyesight. This is provided that you do keep a good reading distance and have adequate light. A good reading distance is about 20 to 30cm. Any form of close reading in any type of position can be considered near-work, which should be avoided. However, reading while lying down is discouraged because gravity pulls your book towards you. That said, it is more likely you will not keep a good reading distance.

What factors affect children's myopia progression speed?

Myopia often begins during childhood. This happens when the eyeball grows too long, thus, causing blurry distance vision. In most cases, myopia tends to get worse as the kid gets older as their eyes will continue to grow. There are many factors that may affect your child's myopia progression speed: the family history of myopia, ethnicity - Asian children have the highest risk [1], lifestyle - the amount of near work, previous history of premature delivery.
