JIANGSU- A two year old girl in China has been diagnosed with severe myopia of 900 degrees after her negligent parents allowed her to use a smartphone from age one.

The parents of Xiao Man from Jiangsu would let her use the device for long periods as “it was the only thing that kept her quiet whenever she was acting up,” according to Asia One.

The girl’s parents took her to a doctor after noticing she was frowning, squinting, and often rubbing her eyes while being glued to the smartphone.

The doctors told the family that the damage is irreversible and with age it could get worse.
