Comparison of Intraocular Pressure Changes Due to Exposure to Mobile Phone Electromagnetics Radiations in Normal and Glaucoma Eye

 

Background and Aim: To investigate the effects of electromagnetic waves (EMWs) emitted by a mobile phone on the Intraocular pressure (IOP) in the eyeball

Methods: This quasi-experimental study was conducted on 166 eyes from 83 individuals in the 40 to 70 age range who referred to “Khatam-al-Anbia Hospital,Mashhad,Iran” in 2016. There were two groups of participants, the first one consisted of 41 subjects who had normal eyes while the second one comprised 42 participants who suffered from open-angle glaucoma disease. The IOP in both groups was measured and recorded by a specialist before and after talking 5 minutes on the cellphone with the help of the Goldman method. Statistical analysis such as paired t-test and ANOVA was performed and all tests are statistically significant at (P < 0.05). For this purpose, the SPSS software (version 16) was applied

Results: IOP in the glaucoma eye (42 eyes) ipsilateral to mobile phone before and after the intervention was 18.64±6.7 and 23.53±6.3 respectively (p<0.001). But IOP in the control group (41 eyes) ipsilateral to mobile phone before and after the intervention was 12.95±3.5 and 13.39±2.8 respectively (p=0.063). IOP change in the opposite glaucomatous eye to mobile phone in glaucoma group (39 eyes) and normal group (44 eyes) was not significantly different before and after the phone call (p=0.065, p=0.85, respectively)Conclusion: we found that the acute effects of EMWs emitted from the mobile phones can significantly increase the IOP in glaucoma eye, while such changes were not observed in normal eyes
