The young woman was addicted to a video game called Honour of Kings. She was having a gaming marathon, having played it for hours, when suddenly she went blind in her right eye, South China Morning Post reported.
At the hospital she was diagnosed with retinal artery occlusion.
The young woman said that she had become so obsessed with the game that she would play it after work and all day on the weekends.
“On days when I have no work, I usually get up at 6 a.m., eat breakfast and play until 4 p.m. Then I’ll eat something, have a nap and play until 1a.m.,” she said.
She added that sometimes she would become so absorbed in the game that she would forget to eat altogether.
