Results (acc. to author)

64.6 % of the participants owned their mobile phones 4 years and longer.
Women reported significantly more inflammation in the eyes than men (30.4 % compared to 10.4 %). No significant differences of other ocular symptoms were observed between men and women. Mobile phone users possessing a mobile phone for more than 2 years reported significantly more blurring vision than users owing a mobile phone less than 2 years. The author concluded that there was no evidence that mobile phone use may cause redness, vision disturbance, secretion, inflammation and lachrymation of the eyes.
