By 2021, there are about 2.7 billion people with myopia. One of the biggest reasons is phone. When people use phone, they tend to move their eyes closer to the screen and it causes the problem.
Consequently, the author designs an app to prevent users’ eyes from getting too close to the screen. The app obtains the distance between users’ eyes and screen via front depth camera. Specifically, when the distance is shorter than healthy distance, the screen will become blurred. After user moves the phone back to the healthy distance, the screen will be clear again. With the app, users will develop a healthy habit.
